Putting a single command in a shell script is useless - because it's a
single command. You can call it a shell script because it has the
shebang but I call it as it is: it's just a single command.

Something like "export MAX_MS=100 OFFSET_MS=89900 [...]" for instance?

That's what a "path" is for, right?
cd /cygdrive/c/apps/bin; ./start.sh

If you do "debugging" by cd'ing into a directory and then pwd'ing, then
you need a tank full of coffee...
