More than likely, this is a path problem.  However, to find out what 
cygwin.bat is complaining about, open a DOS prompt and type in the full
path and name to cygwin.bat, i.e.:

c:\cygwin\cygwin.bat

Take a look at the complaints you get back from this.  That should point
you at the problem.  If you can't figure it out from there, see if you 
can run 'c:\cygwin\bin\cygcheck -srv' (assuming you installed in 'c:\cygwin')
and *attach* that to any follow-up correspondence you have with the list.
