Description aschwarz1309 2014-12-14 00:06:59 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 8.0.2 (Build 201411181905)
Operating System = Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.7.0_45
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 24.45-b08

For cygwin users either Netbeans should allow the user to provide the path environment variable to use (either Windows %PATH% or bash $PATH or ?) or allow specific paths to be inserted for program loads. At the current time, Netbeans load programs in the Windows environment and uses the %PATH% environment variable, however, Netbeans supports cygwin C/C++ compilers (gcc and MingW). This leads to some confusion as to what environment is being used for compilation (cygwin environments) or loading and execution (Windows environments). 

Please provide an option in program properties to allow proper path setup for loading and execution.
