- Subject: Uninstall/Reinstall a CygWin Package Advice
I've never needed to uninstall a CyGwin package,so actually didn't know how.
My zsh was never being updated even though I could see that it was being downloaded and installed,
when I I ran setup.exe.
First of all INSTALL/REINSTALL/UNINSTALL/KEEP is all controlled by SETUP.EXE from the (marvellous)
"Select Packages to install" window
REINSTALL should normally be enough HOWEVER
in case of problems such as mine I would RECOMMEND.
(first backup any config files eg in my case .zshenv)
then if/as necessary manually delete any lingering binaries (TAKE CARE)
Then rerun setup.exe and select
