I have problem using 7-max with Cygwin in WixXPsp2. Almost any command gives following error
C:\Program Files\7-max>7maxc bash
7-max 4.01 Copyright (c) 2003-2004 Igor Pavlov 2004-08-12
g:\prg\cygwin\bin\bash.exe (3732): *** fork: can't reserve memory for stack 0x30
000 - 0x230000, Win32 error 487
Just don't use 7-max for such applications.
I don't think that 7-max can help in "bash"
Yes, Cygwin works a little differently to most other 'apps' in the way it accesses the system.
