I've installed 2.27 and and 2.13 on 3 different machines (XP, Vista, 
2003 server), but on all of them, unison-2.27.exe simply exits (error 
code 1) with no output, regardless of anything written on the command 
line (-version, -help).  Using Process Monitor, I see that it does read 
default.prf (if available), but its presence doesn't seem to matter.

It also doesn't matter whether I execute unison-2.27.exe explicitly or 
through the alternatives link.

2.13 works fine, 2.17 seems OK (it responds to options, but I haven't 
used it actively).

I've attached cygcheck.out from the 2003 server.

Thanks for your time,
