I have some questions prior to upgrading from 1.5.25-15 to 1.7
(currently 1.7.5-1) with respect to Environment and Services.
I already am aware that after the upgrade I should run
presumably in my first console shell.
Under My Computer -> Advanced -> Environment Variables -> System Variables
should the variable server in
be changed to no argument (unless there is a good reason to put in one?)
before the upgrade? That is, is it OK to have nothing as the variable?
Under Administrative Services (Local) I now have cygrunsrv.exe used in:
Should these be changed or turned off during the upgrade? That is,
should these be disabled and then after the upgrade run
as if I were starting cygserver for the first time?
Are there any other common settings I should change before upgrading? I
did look at the docs, but did not notice anything else.
