Re: [1.7] Updated: cygwin-1.7.0-56

I forced a REINSTALL of cygwin1.dll and this time it downloaded the correct version. Everything is fine now.

Folks. Try again with updating 1.7-56. When it is downloaded from mirror:, my 1.7 instance of cygwin will nolonger come up!!

Using my 1.5 instance, and the strings command, I check the 1.7.0-56 version of cygwin1.dll and it comes up with:
/ext/build/netrel/src/cygwin-1.7.0-51, NOT 56.

No comments about using "strings". If no windows are opening up, I can't do a "uname -r" on a dead system. Unless someone comes up with a *good* reason NOT to use it, it stays in.

There is no mystery here. The version of cygwin1.dll that you're looking at came from the 1.7.0-51 release. Maybe you're confused about where you should be looking or maybe you have a process running which is using this dll and, so, could not have been updated by setup. If it is the latter then rebooting would help.

Regardless, this isn't a problem with the release.  It's a problem with
your installation.
