uname -a on 64 bit cygwin should say something like:
CYGWIN_NT-6.1 PC2 1.7.28(0.271/5/3) 2014-02-09 21:06 x86_64 Cygwin
Note there is no "WOW64", and there is a "x86_64".
Sorry that I was not clear.
I have an open source app (hosted on github.com) that was developed
for Linux. It compiles and works on Windows-64 using my current
version of Cygwin, but I suspect that I am getting a 32-bit executable
as a result.
I wish to get a 64-bit executable, which I intend to redistribute to
other Windows users.
Do I need to uninstall my 32-bit version of Cygwin from my laptop
before I install the 64-bit version of Cygwin?
No, you can have both 32 and 64 bit Cygwin installed.
