Re: Cygwin emacs -- apparent version config issue with 24.4 to 24.5

I just did a new install of Cygwin and its emacs using the windows 64 intaller,

Please check your installation!

After I did

$ mv /usr/share/emacs/24.4/ /usr/share/emacs/24.5/

then emacs worked ok. Seems like perhaps the path didn't get updated somewhere
from 24.4 to 24.5?

I think something must have gone wrong with your installation. The paths are correct in the tarball, as you can see at

I suggest you reinstall emacs.
