I tried cygpath but it did not help. It gave me folder path as given below.
I used this path but results were the same.
Anyways half my problem is solved as now with the latest Cygwin I can get
RDiff.exe to work fine, but it only happens if I execute the Cygwin.bat and
run my .Bat file from the bash prompt.
I want to run it automatically from my program without user intervention.
