Please direct me if the following question has been answered - I searched the archives and did not find anything.
I recently converted my Windows XP box to Windows Vista. I am beyond RC1.
I have tried multiple times to install Cygwin, never with success.
In short, here is the problems I've run into:
During initial install bash crashes with the following message:
Please close bash.exe
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will
notify you if a solution is available.
I was tried an install with XWin and X toys which failed; the next time around I tried to install with default settings (no XWin). The error pops up every time. I can launch Cygwin after the install, but I basically get a user prompt with no path or resources.
The more packages I opt to install, the more times the error pops up.
Has anyone successfully installed Cygwin onto a Windows Vista box? Are there any tips which can be provided for the less fortunate of us?
Thank you for your time and assistance!
