Hi Kaz,

I'm cross-posting this reply to tech-talk as it seems to be a common issue.

Note that this is the first time the build tries to actually run a C program 
(antelope.exe) that it has just compiled.  GNUmake isn't able to execute the 
antelope command line.

This has nothing to do with the fact that you're using Windows 7 or a 64-bit 
system.  The problem is that you're using the Cygwin version of make to build 
a non-Cygwin target (win32-x86).  While it might be possible to do this it's 
hard to do and very confusing to work with, since the Windows tools don't 
understand /cygdrive/ paths, and I suspect your Cygwin make doesn't like the 
\\ parts of the command-line it's using to run antelope.  I can't help you 
with getting this mixed tool approach to work since I've never done it, 
although Janet or Mark Rivers might have some experience.

My recommendation to fix this is that you install a native Windows version of 
GNUmake such as the one that comes with the MinGW tools, and while you're at 
it make sure that your version of Perl is similarly Windows native and not 
from Cygwin (either the ActiveState or Strawberry Perl distributions would be 
good).

Use Cygwin tools only to build cygwin-x86 targets, and Windows tools to build 
win32-x86 and windows-x64 targets.  As far as EPICS is concerned, Cygwin is a 
different operating system than Windows.

HTH,

- Andrew
