At some point you must have installed some software that used an ancient
b15 copy of the cygwin DLL. You can just delete the entire
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cygnus Solutions\CYGWIN.DLL setup\ key,
because it is not used by the current Cygwin DLL at all. The only
reason it's reported when you run cygcheck is because cygcheck searches
the registry for keys with 'Cygwin' in the name when you supply -r.
Though, if you still have that piece of software that uses the ancient
cygwin DLL installed, the key will come back if you run it again. I
don't think the current DLL is in any way compatible with the old Bxx
series, so that's why the naming of the registry keys was changed.
