Re: Name Missing


Thank you for your immediate response.  I attempted to install the third
time and everything worked beautifully........therefore, I believe there
must have been an user error or maybe a system state that made it
impossible for Cygwin to install in an uninterrupted manner and therefore
it could not install.

Thank you again for your time.

What is your OS?  Which version of cygwin have you installed?  Which
packages?  What is the value of the CYGWIN environment variable?
All of that can be found in the output of 'cygcheck -svr', so it would be
a good idea to attach it.
