Re: brltty postinstall error during setup-x86.exe Cygwin install

Here's the error during the install:

Package: Unknown package exit code 1

Here's the pertinent line in the /var/log/setup.log.full:

2013/07/30 20:56:03 running: C:\cygwin32\bin\bash.exe --norc
--noprofile "/etc/postinstall/"
cygrunsrv: Error installing a service: OpenService:  Win32 error 1073:
The specified service already exists.^M

The post-install script for brltty registers a Windows service called BrlAPI. If you reinstall Cygwin (say by deleting C:\cygwin and running setup-x86.exe again) without removing this service, then the post-install script will attempt to register this service again and you will see the error.

Before uninstalling Cygwin, you can remove the BrlAPI service by typing:

    cygrunsrv --remove BrlAPI

You can see if any other Cygwin services have been registered by typing

    cygrunsrv --list
