I deleted the cygwin1.dll found in the "C:\Windows" and "C:\Windows\System"
directories but cygwin still does not function.
I believe those were found there because this is my 10th try to install
cygwin on my system but again cygwin1.dll is normally placed only in
"C:\asi\bin\". I wonder how they got there.
As far as the version of cygwin1.dll is concerned, at the previous
installations I used the setup.exe which suported version 1.5.18. .
But, at the last installation I used the latest setup.exe along with
my older packages which I have in a cd-rom ("F:\").
I think that uninstalling and then installing it again for the 11th time
won' t be more succesful than my previous tries. Anyway I' m going to try it.
