Well, cygcheck is just a plain completely ordinary windows program, so if
you can't run that, your computer has /serious/ problems.
Please open a dos box, cd into the cygwin\bin dir, and run the following
commands, one per line, and cut-and-paste the exact output into an email and
send it back to the list. This will start to give us some clues.
dir cygcheck.exe strace.exe
strace.exe --mask=all --output=strace-chk.out cygcheck.exe -svr > cygcheck.out
strace.exe --mask=all --output=strace-bash.out bash.exe --login -x -i
dir cygcheck.out strace-chk.out strace-bash.out
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
