- Subject: failure to install on xp
We have two fairly identical windows XP boxes. ?On mine, cygwin is working
beautifully, with X. ?My coworker tried, but she didn't have admin rights
and X wouldn't install right. Then she got the coveted admin rights, so we
tried to re-install. ?It failed. ?So we thought we would install clean,
deleting c:\cygwin and starting over. ?The installation fails in the
middle with the following error:
Microsoft visual c++ runtime library
? ? ? ? This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an
unusual way ? ? 11:09:10 AM
The system has recently been patched to XP service pack 3, Release version
184.108.40.206 if that helps.
I have Microsoft Visual Studio 2003.net and 2005 installed. ?She does not.
How can I view a log so we can determine what DLL is failing? Clearly
there has to be something different between our two machines.
