Nohup failed to run command 'startup': No such file - Swfotefuss Help

Apologies in advance for what is probably a newbie question and also if this is in the wrong place.

I've worked my way through getting swfotefuss compiled in Cygwin, required files missing from System32 fixed etc etc and I feel like I'm close only to now have run into yet another roadblock.

The instruction in the First Readme says the best way to boot the MUD is using nohup startup 4000 &, which I have tried and gotten:

$ nohup: ignoring input and appending output to 'nohup.out'
nohup: failed to run command 'startup': No such file or directory

Which is odd because the startup file is in the src directory. I've examined the file and the code seems to be correct, near as I can tell anyways.

If I skip starting it through Cygwin and instead just use the swr.exe in the src directory I get a windows error:

The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application.

I can't figure out why that is popping up either. I have replaced every file that might have been acting up and redownloaded/installed .NET framework and anything else that could be the cause. I've also gone through the Windows event log for extra details and found nothing helpful.

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated and of course if there is more info needed let me know what it is and I'd be happy to provide it.

Thanks in advance!

It should be:

nohup ./startup 4000 &

The path is required (ie. the current directory) or it looks for a command in your default path.

As for running it without startup, it expects to be run in the area directory so it can read the area files. So you could do this:

cd ../area        # change to area directory
../src/swr 4000   # run the .exe found in the src directory
