Just installed 1.7.1. Bravo, again.
Everything seems to be working okay, but every time I start up a Mintty/Bash
window I get the following
-bash: regtool: command not found
C:\_0\bin\mintty.exe --icon=c:\_0\cygicons-hippo-vista-0.dll,10 -
'regtool' does not appear in my profile nor my bashrc.
There's a regtool call in /etc/profile:
PRINTER="`regtool -q get '\user\Software\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\Window\Device' | sed 's/,.*$//'`"
I can reproduce this as follows:
- Leave a Cygwin session open.
- Run setup.exe
- Select reinstall for cygwin-1.7.1-1.
- Click next
- "in-use files detected" appears
- Click retry.
Strangely, 'retry' is accepted even without closing all Cygwin
processes. But it doesn't seem to make a difference to the outcome
anyway: regtool and also mount and ps aren't installed.
It can be fixed by reinstalling the cygwin package again, this time
without any Cygwin processes running.
Is this a setup bug?
