Prefer the Windows Emacs due to other configurations that work best there.

(set 'tramp-encoding-shell "F:/bin/cygwin64/bin/mintty.exe")
(set 'tramp-encoding-command-switch "-c")
(set 'tramp-encoding-command-interactive "-i")

and getting the following issue.  Seems like the Windows command
prompt is still being called.

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

The command prompt has been disabled by your administrator.

Press any key to continue . . . /usr/bin/mintty: option '-i' requires
an argument
Try '--help' for more information.
