cygwin usage on Windows

I have a question that I am sure must have been addressed before, but I 
cannot find it after days of searching. Of course I am a Newbie with cygwin.

I have completed an installation, successfully, I think on an x386 
platform w/ Win XP SP3 OS.

I can compile a C program from within the cywgin shell (terminal) but 
cannot do so from a windows page.
Attempting to run the executable from the latter,  generate a terse 
error response, "This application has failed to start because 
cygwin1.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this 

Is this the actual mode of performance (executable to be run only from 
the cygwin shell and not from Windos page) or have I lost functionality 
along the way?
