If you run from the command prompt, then your current directory is
/home/dan, in other words, C:\cygwin\home\dan
You should find cygcheck.out from your earlier run, there.

If there is no C:\cygwin\bin\diff.exe then reinstalling the diffutils
package may help.
Run the Cygwin setup, find diffutils under Utils, and click on the
circular arrows until it says Reinstall.

Hope this helps,
