This  is  normal, it's the information with which you logged
in Windows : [your address@hidden of your computer]
The  tilde  (~)  means  that  you're  in your home directory
(/cygwin/home/standard/), and the $ means it's a prompt. The
_ is the cursor.

If  you want to get to your base directory (I suppose that's
were you have type "cd ../..". I highly suggest you
read to get
acquainted with the bash shell (and eventually change).

I'm by no means an expert, so don't take my word for it, but
this  looks as if the program that executes bash batch files
isn't  installed  (is  that  possible?).  In  which  case, I
suggest you type the following (be careful of typos) :

python "$(cygpath -w ""/usr/lilypond-1.4.5/bin/"")" -P

It's the equivalent of what the file you were trying to call
does.  It  may  be a bit long to remember, but do not forget
any  ".  I  hope this works, and if it does, I wonder what's
