And you expect us to download random packages to point out your bugs?
Give us some more details (like what is the failure message you are
seeing, what exactly are you copying to the other machine, etc).

It sounds like you are trying to set yourself up to be a 3PP
(  Search this list for that acronym to
find better ways of distributing programs that depend on cygwin
(basically, the best way is to make sure cygwin is installed on the target
machine, using cygwin's setup.exe, and then document that your program
depends on cygwin).
