# Re: Mismatch cygwin1.dll

Yes, it seams weird. I'm checking the Version # being extracted from the DLL itself since I can't find any other way to get it. My /cygwin/bin is 1.5 and /cygwinIV is 1.7-xx. Here is cgychk from my 1.5 release:

I did however restore from my Jul 29 backups a copy of the cygwin1.dll and I was able to start up my envorinment without any problems; and it is 1.7.0-51 !!! Now the version is consistance with its size. Has anyone else recently updated their cygwin1.dll to find it corrupt? Regarding my "arcane method'. do you know of any easier method to extract this information? I'm listening. I don't understand the cygwin's download that went haywired on me earlier. - Pauo Christopher Faylor wrote: On Sat, Aug 01, 2009 at 09:50:13PM -0400, Paul McFerrin wrote: After downloading the latest updates arount 7PM tonight, I ended up with strange version numbers: For dll 1.5$ cd /c/cygwin/bin

You'd have to wonder what /bin means in the above scenario and what
version of cygwin you're running.

Every window that is opened displays the current Version string in the banner area. What gives!! Sizes are consistance but Version #?
Are you saying that you have things set up to display the current
version string and you use this arcane method to determine the version?
You need to be much more precise if you think there is a problem and,
as always, we really do need cygcheck output.
