How to fix cygwin extension "unable to start correctly 0xc000007b" on Windows 7 64-bit

In this instance, the cryptic message denoted a bitness problem: dcfldd (the extension in question, like so: for /f %i in ( ‘dir /b .\input’ ) do dcfldd.exe if=input\%i of=output\%i.jpg bs=1 skip=6) would not start in a Cygwin 64-bit environment. Installed cygwin 32-bit (and changed my path), and dcfldd worked fine.
