Windows PATH Pecking Order

Just a reminder to the crazy JDK Windows developers out there ;\^) The order of paths in the PATH variable is critical:

First Visual Studio Then CYGWIN Lastly the Windows system32 directories

The link.exe needs to come from Visual Studio, not CYGWIN. And the standard Unix utility named tools (like grep) need to come from CYGWIN.
