"l" as lake not "i" as idea

```Alecia,
have you noticed :
"Warning: There are multiple cygwin1.dlls on your path"```

```  2604k 2011/03/29 C:\cygwin\home\AL\cygwin1.dll - os=4.0 img=1.0 sys=4.0
"cygwin1.dll" v0.0 ts=2011/3/29 9:10
Cygwin DLL version info:
DLL version: 1.7.9```

```  2791k 2012/10/19 C:\cygwin\bin\cygwin1.dll - os=4.0 img=1.0 sys=4.0
"cygwin1.dll" v0.0 ts=2012/10/19 13:39
Cygwin DLL version info:
DLL version: 1.7.17```

```you need to remove the "C:\cygwin\home\AL\cygwin1.dll"
This is likely the responsible of your problem.
```
```I haven't noticed any of that. Once I deleted C:\cygwin\home\AL\cygwin1.dll
I am now able to compile and run programs.```

```Additional suggestion, not relevant for the problem:
you seems to have installed a lot of gcc compiler```

```gcc-core                  3.4.4-999            OK
gcc-g++                   3.4.4-999            OK```

you could choose to install the next version

```gcc4                                     4.5.3-3
gcc4-core                                4.5.3-3```

Are you sure you need all the mingw compilers ?
```I am not sure what all I need. My professor just said go to the site and
download Cygwin and use the default settings and that is what I did.
```
```gcc4 is to compile on cygwin for cygwin.
So it is the standard one used to build the cygwin binaries.```

```The mingw compilers are cross-compilers.
They compile on cygwin for mingw/windows (http://www.mingw.org/)```

```I will
do some research and find out how to install the current versions of the
suggested compilers. One final question should I now be using the Cygwin

"Cygwin Terminal" is the right (and best) way

```Thanks,
Alecia```
