#7 .EXE file give problems under cygwin

Hi,

I've seen an annioying probem with
cygwin.

When I register a windows tool, the files have the
.exe extension. When this kind of file is interpreted as command by
cygwin, the extension is removed.

Thus, the command
registered contains the .exe extension but when you try to execute
"mycmd.exe", only "mycmd" is sent to the wrapper and the
command does not seem to exist.

The solution I use is
currently to create a symlink
cmd->cmd.exe and register this
one.

Thanks in advance

Steve

    Thanks for your feedback.

    I will implement another solution:
    during the registration process, I will remove the .exe extension during
    the registration process when it occurs under cygwin.
