VB script error in Cygwin

I usually write a CMD.EXE script that in turn, runs cscript and its *.vbs file.


The following lines are a cmd "batch" file called bar.cmd

	@echo on
	echo.This is "bar.cmd," a CMD.EXE script, which will be invoked by Cygwin
	echo.Run a vbscript called "foo.vbs"
	cscript foo.vbs
	echo."foo.vbs" is complete
	echo.Done, now exiting "bar.cmd"

** First ** ---- run bar.cmd within a CMD.EXE window to be sure it and
foo.vbs are working properly outside of Cygwin.

** Second** ---- from within Cygwin's bash (or other) shell, run bar.cmd:

$ cmd /c bar.cmd

Watch for output or results from "foo.vbs" during the run.
