I'm trying to compile Libreoffice on Windows with Cygwin. For this, I had
to install some softs including Microsoft Visual C++ Express 8.
When I launched configuration part of Libreoffice (so just before
compiling), I noticed that some config elements weren't found.
By taking a look about the cause of this, I saw that Windows registry
mapped by Cygwin located in /proc/registry wasn't complete.
For example I've got :
/proc/registry/HKLM/Software/Microsoft/VC8 (since I'm right now on Linux,
the path is not exactly this one but that's the idea) but nothing in it
whereas I can see with regedit there are keys and subkeys.

This key? /proc/registry/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/VisualStudio/8.0

I could not reproduce this. Please provide output of:

$ uname -rs
$ cd /proc/registry/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft
$ stat VisualStudio/8.0
$ ls -la VisualStudio/8.0

If 'ls' output is actually empty, retry with Cygwin shell running as
(ls /proc/registry/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SAM/SAM should work then).

Please note that the Express editions of Visual Studio put some subkeys to
a different location:
A configuration script expecting Express edition might not work with a
regular edition and vice versa.
In fact, I can't test any more since I uninstall Cygwin (registry cleaning +
cygwin directory) and can't succeed in reinstall it again.
Each time I try, I've got a Windows error blue screen (BSoD).
Of course, I know there could be interaction with other softs, so i
deactivated Avast for example and use no software meanwhile (I thought it
could be the fact to use Firefox during install for example) but no way.
I appreciate your help but now I don't want to waste some time to guess the
cause of this BSoD so I return to Linux.

Thank you for having answered.

A BSoD is caused by bad drivers or some other kernel problem. You can check the first line of the report for the DLL/SYS file that it bombed in to see if that gives you a clue as to the source of the problem. Otherwise, try updating Windows or back out any recently added hardware.
