Side-by-side configuration is incorrect reported as permission denied
Sat Aug 11 00:45:00 GMT 2012
I use Cygwin a lot. And I kick off Windows processes a lot. Recently
I've been having a problem with my system but from Cygwin all I see is
Ltsdo-adefaria:cd /cygdrive/c/Program\ Files/IBM/RationalSDLC/Clearquest
Ltsdo-adefaria:ls -l clearquest.exe
-rwxr-xr-x+ 1 Administrators clearusers 245760 Jun 2 2011
bash: ./clearquest: Permission denied
However if I use cmd the real error message comes out:
Ltsdo-adefaria:cmd /c clearquest
The application has failed to start because its side-by-side
configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or
use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.
I know that this "side-by-side configuration is incorrect" is a
configuration error on my machine and I need to fix it, but shouldn't
Cygwin's exec(2) report the "side-by-side" error instead of the more
erroneous "Permission denied" error?

Why do you press harder on the buttons of a remote control when you know
the batteries are dead?
