In your start-menu you should have a Cygwin entry that allows you to start cygwin / a bash shell. (I'm not sure what the exact title is of the start-menu entry).

Start this, and all cygwin commands should be available.

They are located in c:\cygwin\bin;c:\cygwin\usr\bin and some other locations inside c:\cygwin. (Or different drive, if you installed differently.) Normally they aren't in your PATH, until you start the bash shell.

Hope this helps,

I've installed the Cygwin software in order to run the PostgreSQL database
on Windows XP, but I can´t find the "initdb" and others Cygwin commands.
I´ve installed the Cygutils software too.

Any help would be appreciated.

Best Regards,
