# Arrgh... more path issues?

```Let me guess: this is because the jar utility doesn't like Cygwin paths.?

(cd  C:/Prg/jdk1.7.0/build-fastdebug/classes && C:/Prg/jdk1.6.0/bin/jar xf
/cygd

rive/c/Prg/OpenJDK/openjdk-binary-plugs/jre/lib/rt-closed.jar
@C:/Prg/jdk1.7.0/b

uild-fastdebug/tmp/java/plugs/jmf.clist -J-client -J-Xmx383m -J-Xms128m

rmSize=32m -J-XX:MaxPermSize=160m )

java.io.FileNotFoundException:

I would suggest, as an RFE or bug, that the various macros used on Windows
have some kind of naming convention to them to indicate where a Cygwin path
is needed, where an MS-style path is needed, and where it makes no
difference. (But I have no offhand suggestions as to what that naming
convention would look like, or how it might interact with the build macros
for other platforms.) There's just GOT to be some kind of way to tell these
apart, though. :-/
