Thanks Thomas Wolff, L A Walsh and Brian Inglis for your responses. I
am trying to cover the most important parts in this one message to
prevent the email chain from branching.

Thanks, that was helpful. A dialog titled "hello.exe - Application
Error" appeared, saying
"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b).
Click OK to close the application." The  console contained the following output:

$ strace -f ./hello

(Replaced a sensitive string with "XXXXXX" there.)

I included a modified version of cygcheck.out. Mostly sensitive letter
sequences have been
replaced by 6 X's: "XXXXXX".  And user groups in was all replaced by
"/// User group names and numbers omitted ///"
