That's probably because mount is trying to create system mounts by
default, and the HKLM key has restricted access (as it should).  Try using
"mount -u" instead, i.e.,

mount -u -b "E:/aIEngine/CYGWIN" "/"
mount -u -b "E:/aIEngine/CYGWIN/bin" "/usr/bin"
mount -u -b "E:/aIEngine/CYGWIN/lib" "/usr/lib"
