Yes, but that does not stop you from invoking a cygwin shell, and run Hatari 
from there. And if symlinks don't work, it might be possible to edit the 
config file instead, and enter the device name there.

Didn't try it either, but theoretically, it should work. Of course i would 
only try that with some removable device that can easily be reconstructed, not 
with the real HD. Also it might be difficult to find out the correct 
devicename, i'm not sure whether they are displayed in the device manager.

Since some time, Hatari also has a byteswap option just like Aranym, one of 
the settings should work in either case. I'm currently using that with an 
image that i use for both Aranym and Hatari, and which i can also directly 
mount under linux without having to swap it first. Very handy.
