Awesome! Thanks for the remote Windows execution ;-)

I think if the instructions include that it should be a Cygwin64 terminal, this might work, since you need Cygwin anyway for Isabelle.

The one remaining question would be, which path do I need to put in, is it just "/cygdrive/c/afp/thys" or does it need anything else? I.e. is /cygdrive/c the right prefix for Isabelle?
