Read my post from 2 minutes ago:
Install libpoppler26.

But can somebody tell me, why cygwin prints Bad address?
Also, is ldd /usr/bin/pdftex.exe broken since it didn't print any
information about missing libraries when cygpoppler-26.dll didn't exist
on my system?
Only by accident, I tried "strace pdftex" and a nice windows popped up
informing me about the lack of cygpoppler-26.dll on my system.
