comment Can I make write18 send command lines to Cygwin bash instead of Windows command interpreter?
@G. Poore: Thanks for your comments. Regarding PythonTex, it is not the kind of solution I am looking for, because the class file I want to use provides more than just Python facilities. Regarding how to call Cygwin bash from the Windows interpreter, it is the ugly solution I have adopted, so thank you very much, this allows me to make compilation work (after modifying the \write18 arguments in the class file). However, I'm still interested in configuring MiKTeX in order to make it use bash so I can use the original class file (or other bash-supported class files in the future).

Thank you very much, @David, I will try your suggestion in case no one knows how to force MiKTeX to do what I need. I would prefer not to change my LaTeX distribution (nor mix two of them) if avoidable.
