> The wrapper shell scripts for the .bat tools (al.bat, xbuild.bat, etc...) in this new installer are using cygpath to convert paths, which makes them unusable in a msys/mingw environment. cygpath should be used conditionally when used within cygwin and it's not needed when used with msys.

I fixed the issue with mono.exe and mono-sgen.exe with:
EDITBIN mono.exe /SUBSYSTEM:WINDOWS,5.01 /OSVERSION:5.1
So it looks like the link flags are not using the correct os version.
In my previous mail I was probably not clear enough about the issue
with the .bat files. They are not being called directly from the
msys/mingw shell but it's xbuild calling them, so xbuild can't be used
with this new .bat using cygpath.

>> Hey Jo, I tried it and it installed fine for me.
>> However, the version is currently set to 3.12.1 in https://github.com/directhex/newbuilder/blob/master/resources/build.bat and https://github.com/directhex/newbuilder/blob/master/resources/bat/setmonopath.bat, I guess we should change that to 3.12.0.
>> Btw. build.bat could be integrated into the bash files quite easily I think (for consistency), it just invokes msbuild.
>> The BCL assemblies are taken from the 3.10 MDK installer as far as I can see?
