It looks as though the Hexiom solver that you're using has Cygwin under the bonnet. The version of Cygwin used is probably quite old and needs updating to work with modern versions of Windows.

See: https://cygwin.com/faq.html#faq.using.fixing-find_fast_cwd-warnings

I'm afraid that we can't support that here. You need to contact the supplier of the Hexiom solver and ask them to rebuild using a newer version of Cygwin. Failing that, you could compile your own version using the instructions at the top of this file: https://www.benzedrine.ch/hexiom/hexiom.c
