- Subject: Installing error: cygwin1.dll not found
I recently installed cygwin on my Windows XP but when I try to run cygwin I
get an error saying ?This application (bash.exe) has failed to start because
cygwin1.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this
I also got a similar message during the initial installation and it keeps
coming up on attempted re-installations (when I tried re-installing the
default packages). After checking the FAQs I identified the cygwin1.dll in
the cygwin package and have tried to install it specifically on the Select
Packages setup page by switching the toggle button from ?skip? to
?1.5.18-1.? When I click next, the setup detects additional dependent
packages that need to be downloaded, but when I continue I get one of the
following two errors:
?Fatal error: uncaught exception
Message: URL Scheme not registered!?
or ?Can?t open (null) for reading: no such file?
What am I doing wrong? I also found a similar problem in the mailing list
archives, entitled ?Error while installing cygwin? from Abhinav Varshney,
dated 11/5/05. Thanks for any help that you can give.
setup.exe version 2.510.2.2
cygwin dll release version 1.5.18-1
