Thanks so much Paul. I used set and indeed found the line G4LEDATA=C:/Geant4/geant4_9_3_p01/data/G4EMLOW6.9. I then typed export G4LEDATA=C:/Geant4/geant4_9_3_p01/data/G4EMLOW6.9 but get the same thing. When I open it in cygwin all I get is the GEANT4 header. When I double-click the application in windows it says

G4EMDataSet - G4LEDATA environment variable not set

what am I doing wrong?
