This is an important information to start with.
Where did you get that from? From cygwin ports ?
(I can not find that version among official 'STABLE', but it is listed here

This is very short. I have:
$ cygcheck -c vim
vim 7.3.003-1 OK
$ cygcheck -l vim | wc
1586 1586 64915
The cygwin port version of vim depends on vim-common package.
I suppose the Installer suggested to install that.

(I think you did not try to reinstall/upgrade/downgrade vim.)

The output is truncated, and the page says that.

Yes. I use it and I am very happy with it.
(Up to the point that I had problems with fork() when vimdiff was started.
If you experience that, search for 'rebaseall', that will help I think.)
>Or separate installation required?
I hope installing vim-common helps.
