This article explains how to add and start Win32 programs from an Interix shell.

To add and start Win32 Programs, follow these steps:

    [PROMPT] PATH="$PATH://C/WINNT/system32"

    NOTE: File names and path names are case sensitive.
  2. Specify the entire file name when you run a program. For example, to run the CACLS utility, type:

    [PROMPT] CACLS.EXE
