Unhappy cygwin

Im want to modify and run an OCR app on android.As per my research i found that the OCR engine needs an NDK access.
Hence i've started with trying basic ndk samples.But im unable to compile/run those samples too.
Im working on windows 7 64-bit.

My question is whether i need to use Cygwin to run the above ?
If not where am i going wrong?

Yes, you need to use Cygwin if you are on a windows box.

All of the ndk scripts are written using the linux shell script commands.

Furthermore, all of the native code is compiled as shared or static objects (linux version of DLLs/static libraries), since android runs on top of a modified linux kernel. Thus, you need to perform all tasks in a linux environment, emulated or otherwise.
