@Arabella - you should edit that last comment into your question - it's a really important factor in finding a solution.

comment How can I add cygwin/bin to the search path in Windows XP?
Actually @bob in case I disagree. Cygwin is a environment on top of windows (essentially a shell), in this case I think it would be better to run the windows binaries second. In the case of other programs that are non 'replacing windows behaviours' then your suggestion hold water.

comment Windows 7 and ocx installation
Yes you need to do a whole load of reading on User Access Control and other Vista + security changes. The OSs have lots of security differences.

comment Windows 7 and ocx installation
Remember that Windows Vista and above has Registry Virtualization - msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/… - which is part of the security changes in these OSes. Since you can complete the action as an administrator this surely means that it's security issue? Your program as current need to run with Elevated Security Permissions.
