Cygwin Awk Error

If you run awk and get the message "ntvdm encountered an error", see this post

The blog said to remove c:\cygwin\bin\awk.exe and create the file c:\cygwin\bin\awk.bat with the contents:
c:\cygwin\bin\gawk.exe %*
 And the error is gone.

Thanks by your answer, I solved it using gawk instead of awk.
