Hi all,
I had installed Cygwin sometime back on WindowsXp machine.
When I use simple g++ command for simple programs it compiles and links
program properly.

When I try to make my project with Eclipse IDE with CDT plugin and try to
build my program using make file it gives me one popup box

16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem –

The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction CS:00cf IP:032c OP:ff
ff 05 00 1d  Choose ‘Close’ to terminate the application

I thought there is some problem with Eclipse so I tried to make my C++
project from cygwin command line. And this time also I am getting same

16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem –

The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction CS:0000 IP:0077 OP:f0
37 05 0a 02  Choose ‘Close’ to terminate the application

Does anyone have an idea what the problem is?
