Beginning PRogrammer trying to solve an issue.

I am currently attempting to learn OpenCV and wanted to hook up my camera to my Windows Laptop.
I was directed to download an application called gphoto2, but, learned it was suited for Linux.
I researched around and found these instructions to download the files on Windows<http://foobaring.blogspot.com/2013/10/howto-install-gphoto2-in-windows-7.html>.
I followed the instructions, however, received this error while following:
1 [main] gphoto2 12572 find_fast_cwd: WARNING: Couldn't compute FAST_CWD pointer
My understanding of this problem is that the windows operating system cannot interpret the commands executed by this program because they are using the Linux software.
As such, I did some researching and found a possible solution through downloading the newer versions of Cygwin (thank for this).
I have downloaded the current version as instructed and am still receiving the same error message.
I wanted to know if downloading an older version would correct this, or, if it was a matter of selecting the correct packages from Cygwin.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
