Today i install cygwin1.7.1 and netbeans6.8 on my laptop, using windows 7 operating system. There is nothing wrong with the installation, everything go smoothly until i find something different at the console. When i try to run a program using netbeans, warning messages will appear, “cygwin warning: MS-DOS style path detected..”.
Based on the warning message, i try to set windows’ environment variable option. The steps are right click My computer, choose properties. Computer basic info will appear, choose Advanced system setting in the left menu. At the system properties window, choose Environment Variables and add new System Variables named CYGWIN with value nodosfilewarning.
voila, warning message dissapear 🙂
