Hi again

I have found now an interesting link: 

Is that, what I'm searching for? I have read the description and it looks
like that this version of the Configuration Tool is running without cygwin?
But the page itself is marked as "obsolete". So maybe this work was not

How knows more about this?

We use the same linux VM on all our developer work stations under a windows
host at the moment. Also for building eCos. No Problems so far.

In the past we also maintained a cygwin-free mingw-based gcc/make
Buildenvironment. But only building ecos applications, not eCos itself.

If you have problems with the moving cygwin target you can also setup local
cygwin repositories with a fixed version where all developers get their
cygwin from.

Best solution for us was the linux VM. Least trouble.
