[SOLVED] ARM GCC with Cygwin on Windows 8.1 : fatal error: no input file

Issue

I am newbie for Linux and build systems and I am trying to move code base from Linux to Windows. I am getting some issues for build.

I have installed

and when I build my application, I am getting following error :

arm-none-eabi-gcc.exe: error:
/cygdrive/d/developments/RIOT/examples/ipc_pingpong/main.c: No such file or directory
arm-none-eabi-gcc.exe: fatal error: no input files
compilation terminated.

It looks like a path problem between cygwin (cygdriver) and windows. I have also set CYGPATH as c:\cygwin64\bin\cygpath.exe but result is same.

Why gcc compiler cannot see my files? Any idea.

Regards.

Murat.
