Andy,

Thanks!!

That did it. I already had cygwin/bin in my windows path, but once I
made the 
Shortcut edit the ecos config tool came up.

Thanks a ton for solving this headache.

Regards,

-Ray

Hi Ray,

I'm a bit at a loss to say what the problem is.

Can you see cygpng12.dll in your cygwin /bin directory (c:\cygwin\bin on
my 
PC, but depends on your installation choices)? If so, is the cygwin /bin

directory on your windows path? The simplest way to ensure that this is
set 
is to create a shortcut to the configtool.exe binary and then edit the 
shortcuts properties so that the application starts in the /bin
directory.

Hope this helps and let me know how you get on.

    Andy..

Hi Andy,

I would also like to thank you for your support.

I added all of the libpng stuff, I already had tcltk installed. But I
still get the same error:
 "This application has failed to start because cyngpng12.dll was not
 found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

I am going to reinstall the binary configtool.exe from your website:
web site (www.xylanta.com), to see if that makes a difference.

Thanks,

-Ray

Hi Ray,

I've just installed Cygwin 1.5.21-1 using the default installation
configuration and got exactly the same error. After adding the libpng
and tcltk packages (found in the libs category) to my cygwin
configuration and ensuring that the cygwin bin directory was on my path
everything worked as expected.

I hope this helps,

Andy..
