It installs but when I try to run cygwin.bat, the terminal screen comes

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is now partially out of date and won't run without a reboot.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
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.
Well, certainly not "at once" but you can install them side by side (no
Windows pun intended) if you wish. If that's what you're trying to do,
I still recommend not running 'setup.exe' from an active Cygwin shell.
It is also best to close all Cygwin programs and services before
Are you stating that although having the two installed in completely
separate directories, that they are still running services at system
If you have configured services to run, then yes, those will run
at bootup unless you've configured them not to. However, I was
making no direct comment about Cygwin services in my reply.
I have just now deleted the 1.7 installation, installed it again and it
I see. Well, try my suggestions. If that doesn't help, check for things
getting in your way, like <http://cygwin.com/acronyms/#BLODA>. You can
also start a command prompt and invoke 'bash --login -i' and see if you
get any feedback.
