Hi all. I'm trying to do the following and running into some
1. Install cygwin on a host computer (works).
2. Compile a set of binaries and dll's using gcc/make (works).
3. Sanity check that the binaries actually run and execute
4. Zip the compiled binaries and dlls, then unzip on a different
cygwin install (works).
5. Run the compiled binaries (some of which use the dll's) (does
not work on some systems).
What does 'cygcheck <foo>' on the target system in the context in which
<foo> should be run say, where <foo> is your executable? If this doesn't
point at a missing DLL, you can do 'echo $?' after running the executable
in question and get some insight as to why it's failing. Also,
it's worthwhile looking at the output of 'cygcheck -s -r -v' on both
the original and target system to look for important differences.
