- Subject: mcshield.exe hangs update installation
I've got the version 1.5.23 of cygwin (downloaded from
http://linux.rz.ruhr-uni-bochum.de/download/cygwin ) and I'm trying to
update my installation. The older setup executable (setup.exe) that I
have recommends that I download a new version if I have trouble
installing -- which happens to be the case. The installer stops running
after a few seconds and appears to hang (no page faults), while
mcshield.exe takes 100% of the CPU.
So I download the new setup.exe, and I try running it, but again
mcshield.exe seizes the CPU :(
I've searched the net and found what looks like a workaround (here
http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2000-04/msg00657.html) but I would like
to know if there is a better solution.
