BOMC iso error

Problem: Using IBM’s ToolCenter Bootable media creator (BOMC) to make a updatexpress cd keep failing with an error on the ISO creation step.

Error: Error(s) occurs while creating the bootable media! Error message: Media creation error: The mkisofs utility failed to create ISO file

Solution: come to find out that the iso creation step conflicts with cygwin or cygwin.dlls, So in my case I had cygwin installed on the system that the BOMC was running on and creating this error, I stopped the cygwin process and the BOMC ran with out problems.
