Are you sure you copied that error message completely 100% accurately? The
filename ought to be "cygintl-8.dll", not "libintl-8.dll".

The full gory details are at that link in the other reply, but probably the
quickest and simplest answer for you is to add the cygwin bin dir to your PATH
settings in the windows environment variables.
I'm assuming that you're trying to start the program from cmd.exe or by
double-clicking in explorer, rather than from a cygwin shell. If you're
getting this error when you try and launch the executable from a shell,
something else is wrong.
