It seems your application is using an old library not
available anymore

$ cygcheck -p cygncurses-8.dll
Found 0 matches for cygncurses-8.dll

$ cygcheck -p cygncurses
Found 8 matches for cygncurses
libncurses++w10-6.0-12.20171125 - libncurses++w10: Terminal display library
libncurses++w10-6.1-1.20190727 - libncurses++w10: Terminal display library
libncursesw10-6.0-11.20170617 - libncursesw10: Terminal display library
libncursesw10-6.0-12.20171125 - libncursesw10: Terminal display library
libncursesw10-6.1-1.20190727 - libncursesw10: Terminal display library

so current version is number 10.

 From where this program is coming from ?
