$ bash --norc --noprofile /etc/postinstall/mintty.sh
/bin/mkdir: cannot create directory `/c/Documents and Settings/All Users/Start Menu/Programs/Cygwin': Permission denied
mkshortcut: Saving "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Cygwin\mintty.lnk" failed; does the target directory exist?
/bin/chmod: cannot access `/c/Documents and Settings/All Users/Start Menu/Programs/Cygwin/mintty.lnk': No such file or directory
echo $?
1

Thanks,

- Barry
