There's a regtool call in /etc/profile:
PRINTER="`regtool -q get '\user\Software\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\Window\Device' | sed 's/,.*$//'`"
I can reproduce this as follows:
- Leave a Cygwin session open.
- Run setup.exe
- Select reinstall for cygwin-1.7.1-1.
- Click next
- "in-use files detected" appears
- Click retry.
Strangely, 'retry' is accepted even without closing all Cygwin
processes. But it doesn't seem to make a difference to the outcome
anyway: regtool and also mount and ps aren't installed.
It can be fixed by reinstalling the cygwin package again, this time
without any Cygwin processes running.
