Q: How to get Mathematica to find an external DLL?

Hello,

I'd like to call an external tool from within Mathematica under Win98. This external
tool is compiled under cygwin and needs cygwin1.dll.
The command I tried to launch: !"tool.exe"
Mathematica starts a shell, I think it is a DOS-Shell. It disappears immeatedly, and Mathematica
complains about not finding cygwin1.dll.

I tried to specified the path by appending it
1) to Mathematica's $Path-Variable;
2) to the %PATH% Environment-Variable in AUTOEXEC.BAT for DOS which I think
should be the right place;
(3) in the cygwin-$Path-Environment it was already defined.

Any hints are welcome!

Please send a copy of your answer directly to schnoerr at mailzone.com

Thank you very much in advance.

With best wishes,

Claudius
