Hi Larry

Thank you for your quick reply.

Trimmed out quoted header that aren't needed and are fodder for spambots.

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 Your installation is now partially out of date and won't run without a reboot.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.

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 installing.

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
still dies.

I see. Well, try my suggestions. If that doesn't help, check for things getting in your way, like <>. You can also start a command prompt and invoke 'bash --login -i' and see if you get any feedback.
