Using windows text mode without setup.exe

- Subject: Using windows text mode without setup.exe
I am developing an application that links with the Cygwin dll (i.e. I
don't want people to have to have a Cygwin install on their
computers). The application needs read from and write to files in
text mode (i.e. using CRLF format). This works fine on my development
machine, because I can just use the Cygwin setup program to specify
the Windows text mode as default. However, when I package up my
distribution with the Cygwin dll and install it elsewhere, the program
writes UNIX linefeeds.
Please, is there some way to specify that Windows text mode should be
used without going through the Cygwin setup program? Should it be
done automatically and I'm just missing something?
As per the reporting guidelines, I am attaching the output from
cygcheck -s -v -r.
Thank you for your time,
