- Subject: 'system cannot find the file specified' when starting bash
I've made a fresh install of Cygwin to Windows XP machine. While
starting bash I get following error message:
"Error (2): The system cannot find the file specified."
Bash starts successfully but the error msg is a little bit annoying.
It seems the reason is that Cygwin assumes I have printers in the
system. /etc/profile runs regtool which prints the above error
message if key cannot be found:
`regtool get '\user\Software\Microsoft\Windows
The error message disappears if adding "-q" (quiet) to parameters.
This might be a FAQ but I didn't succeed in finding it on the net.
If not done already maybe it could be fixed in the next release?
