The error message I observed was due to my system being misconfigured. 
Apparently (I'm not a windows expert), C:\windows\system should have been
in my path as set by autoexec.bat, but it wasn't for some reason.  After
fixing autoexec.bat and removing /etc/group, I rebooted and didn't see
this error message.
