Re: setup.exe fails

Hello Brian,

Thank you for your reply.

Following your hints I:
- stopped & deactivated sshd service in Control Panel
- started setup.exe
- changed from Keep to Reinstall for all components
and setup.exe worked as expected.
Eventually I activated & started the sshd service in Control Panel.

Once again thank you very for your prompt & accurate reponse.

Odd that you don't have $HOME set...

Okay, you've got cygwin1.dll v1.5.11 here...

Warning: There are multiple cygwin1.dlls on your path

I think that is due to you running cygcheck from your /usr/bin directory, in which case cygcheck gets confused and sees it twice, since /usr/bin and . are both in the path. The cygcheck logic could be a little improved here.

cygwin 1.5.12-1

However, setup seems to think that you have v1.5.12 of the dll
installed. Try running setup, put everything at "keep", then go to just
the 'cygwin' package itself and select "reinstall". That ought to get
the latest cygwin dll on your system, then you can run setup again a
second time and let it upgrade whatever other packages need updating. There are still some bugs in setup where updating both the main cygwin
dll and other packages at the same time causes it to get confused, I'm
not sure if you hit one of those cases or not.
