I really can't tell anything about the problem you're having with the
information provided but from what you did say, I'm left with a sneaking
suspicion that your questions are not Cygwin-related.  If that is indeed
true, then they are off-topic for this list.  You may want to follow-up
on some more-appropriate list if this is the case.
