OS Windows 98se
MSYS version 1.0.11
Having corrected msys.bat as per my comment on bug 2845328 I have a shell running and
Bash builtins working correctly, but external commands are met with the message
- Cannot open
Searching the source for "- Cannot open" took me to the function
IsMsys(const char *File) in file ...\winsup\cygwin\ismsys.cc
The problem seems to be with the FILE_SHARE_DELETE flag at line 95 which I
believe is not supported on Windows9x.Unfortunately msdn documentation is not
now very helpful on older versions of Windows, but a simple test program suggests that
CreateFile() will always fail if this flag is used.
