Hi everybody !
After a lot of time I decided to upgrade my very old version of Cygwin
to latest release.
Unfortunately there is something wrong when I try to execute sshd sever
by for example "net start sshd". Any trial ends with message:
"Entry point of procedure _impure_ptr not found in library cygwin1.dll".
I utilize Windows 2000 with SP4.
What is solution of my proble ?

Possibly just a reboot, but more likely a rerun of setup.exe with all services stopped. Although you did not follow these reporting directions:

Problem reports:

it looks like your cygwin1.dll was not upgraded because it was in use at the time. Therefore, when the new sshd tries to use features of the new cygwin, but the old cygwin is still in use, you get the mentioned crash.

Thanks for response but:
1) Rebooting did not resolve the problem
2) Cygwin1.dll is from July 2005 so I guess it is new. As a matter of fact I removed all cygwin files from
Cygwin directory and installed latest version of Cygwin to other partition on my disk. Situation did not changed.
