I highly recommend _not_ running "setup.exe" from within a Cygwin shell. And actually, I believe this is your problem. Your installation is now partially out of date and won't run without a reboot. If you don't have Cygwin running when you install, you won't have this problem.

When I first started trying to run cygwin 1.7, I thought I read in the installation instructions that
1.5 & 1.7 could be installed at once.

Are you stating that although having the two installed in completely separate directories,
that they are still running services at system bootup?

I have just now deleted the 1.7 installation, installed it again and it still dies.

Yours Sincerely

Stephen Grant Brown
