There are a lots of threads dealing with cygwin. Start by searching this forum for cygwin.

A recent thread about compiling is UNIX apps on CYGWIN

You will need to recompile the application, but chances are it won't run in Windoze if it was developed for UNIX. Cygwin is just an application to make a shell look like a unixoid system, it is not a UNIX-emulator in a stricter sense.

Which programming language was this aplication written? It the answer is "bash" or any other shell it might just work, because you have a working shell in Cygwin. If the answer is "C" or any other high-level-language: see above.

I hope this helps.
