Actually, the real answer is more general -- the following could replace
the current "My application cannot locate cygncurses5.dll!!" question
and a lot more:
"My application cannot locate a cyg*.dll!
Keywords for searching: cygncurses5.dll, cygintl.dll, <whatever other
DLLs become FAQs>
You need to reinstall the package that contains the DLL. First, go to
http://www.cygwin.com/packages/ and search for your DLL by its full
name: for instance, `cygncurses5.dll' and not `cygncurses' or `ncurses'.
You may find that multiple packages contain the desired DLL -- for
instance, both `gettext-0.10.38-2' and `libintl-0.10.38-3' contain
cygintl.dll. You want the newest one.
How can you tell which one is the newest?
#1) Always prefer 'lib<something>' to '<something>'. In the
preceeding example, then, we'd prefer `libintl-0.10.38-3' to
#2) If THAT doesn't narrow it down enough for you, then use the
version numbers...higher versions are newer.
Once you have determined that you need to reinstall a given package, use
setup.exe to do so."
