- Subject: What is the minimum needed to run gtar?
I want to allow the users I support to be able to run Cygwin tar on their Windows machines.
These machines have not had any Cygwin installed; they're just bare Windows machines.
I provided them tar.exe and cygwin1.dll and assumed that with these, they could run
Cygwin tar sucessfully. It appears that that isn't the case: machines without Cygwin
installed see different behavior than machines which have it installed. (Running tar
on machines without Cygwin installed creates incorrect tar archives.)
What is the minimum I need to provide to a non-Cygwin Windows machine to get
Cygwin tar to run reliably?
