Hi again,

I've uploaded a new windows installer to

This installer includes a slightly modified System/Environment.cs in
mscorlib.dll to fix some issues with the GAC on windows.

Other changes since the last one:
      * Create working wrapper scripts for cygwin.
      * Create wrapper scripts for more mono tools (al, cert2spc,
        certmgr, disco, gacutil, genxs, ilasm, makecert, resgen, setreg,
        signcode, sn, soapduds, wsdl, xsd) as cygwin scripts and .bat
      * Set more missing variables in the scripts.
      * Don't use EXIT /B %ERRORLEVEL% in the .bat files.

Remember that the .bat wrappers are created in the windows directory
(c:\windows, c:\winnt or whatever) and that implies that if you want to
work with MS tools with the same name, you have to set the PATH properly
(ie., prepending MS path to the tools to the default PATH, which is what
sane sdkvars.bat files should do).

Please, give it a try and report any issue. I hope this is the last one


P.S.: many thanks to people that tried the last one and reported back.
