- Subject: cygpcre.dll missing after update
I just updated to 1.5.5, and subsequently, whenever I start
up bash I get an error stating that cygpcre.dll cannot
be found. I perused the archives here and saw a few
references to this problem but no clear solution.
I tried re-installing the pcre package and installing
earlier versions of it via setup to no avail.
I found /bin/cygpcre-0.dll and copied it to cygpcre.dll
and the problem "went away," but I rather doubt this
is the correct solution.
Any suggestions would be most welcome.
For that matter, if anyone can point me to a reference that
describes how dll's are named and/or located at runtime,
that would make me more effective as well.
