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.
