I am trying to learn hadoop and I am following the installation steps on http://v-lad.org/Tutorials/Hadoop/12%20-%20format%20the%20namendoe.html. However I am getting the following error and I have no clues why is it not able to find PlatformName in the classpath. Also I am concerned about,"cygpath: can't convert empty path". Can anyone let me know what might be the reason that I am getting this error.
