Re: ssh fails, missing cygcrypto-0.9.7.dll


Thank you for the manual removal process.
I am working with another member of the cygwin support
folks on dealing with the ssh recovery.

The ssh I added was a cygwin release from another site.
It is seeking a cygwin crypto file, just an earlier release
than you indicated that it should. If it was a third party
ssh, I suspect that it would not seek a cygwin crypto file.

I will create an attachment if requested in the future.
Your instructions said attach not attachment.

Thank you,

Unable to run ssh due to missing dll.


I ran the setup.exe many times to pick up that dll . It's missing
in action.
Suggestions are welcome?

Please read and follow the Cygwin problem reporting guidelines at
<>.  In particular, please attach the
output of "cygcheck -svr" as an uncompressed text attachment.  Without
this information, we can only guess at what's wrong with your system.

One WAG: the latest ssh should depend on cygcrypto-0.9.8.dll -- did you
have sshd running while you upgraded? Did setup inform you that in-use
files were replaced? Did you reboot as setup told you?

I am running Windows XP.
Downloads failed from several mirror sites.
sshd was not running during install.

ssh was initially missing I loaded an ssh from another site.

Ok, here's your culprit. Please contact "another site" for the support of their ssh package. According to your cygcheck, you don't even have openssh installed. Alternatively, remove the third-party ssh and install the official Cygwin openssh package.

I attempted to remove cygwin package to start over but cgywin was
in the Windows Add/Remove utility listing.

Yes, Cygwin is installed/uninstalled using the setup utility.

It is true that I failed to reboot one several attempts.

Perhaps I should start over. How can I flush cgywin out to start

See <>. But you don't really need to remove all of Cygwin, just the third-party ssh package.

Below is the information that you requested.

That was not an attachment. In the future, please provide the cygcheck
output as an attachment to avoid adding spurious search matches to list
