This is why you got the complaint about cygwin1.dll being busy.

When you did the upgrade, did you download the current 'setup.exe' from


Hm.  There was an issue with 'setup.exe' not properly handling the
of the Cygwin DLL on reboot but I thought that was fixed.  I'd recommend
stopping all your services and reinstalling the Cygwin package.

I tried rerunning it but it said "nothing to do". How do I force it?

Found it. Went into Base and selected "Reinstall" on Cygwin.

I first stopped the services, then reinstalled the cygwin package and
then was not prompted to reboot after it finished.

And things now appear to work normally.

OK, good. I thought that would do it.

I see this in cygcheck:

Warning: There are multiple cygwin1.dlls on your path

In general that looks good. You should check that you actually don't have multiple cygwin1.dlls in your path. If things are working, it's quite possible that you don't but rather just have multiple paths to the 1 DLL you have (i.e. /usr/bin and /bin in your path). If that describes your situation, then you're fine.



A: Yes.
