Hi ,

Thanks for information provided.

I tried putting cygwin/ bin path in first place in environment
variables. But result remain same.

Yes all other DLL's getting loaded are either pervasive dll or windows
native dll.

I have doubt ,.Is there any compilation variable or cygwin varaible
set for autoloading all dll's

As in same windows 2012 system this extra DLL's are not getting loaded
with previous versions of cywin and Fork is working there.

I have downloaded the source also, I check some varibel there if you can help.

Looks like program just hangs child process after open call and never
comes back.

  Please suggest what I can check .
