I just ran Cygwin x64 setup executable to make some changes to my
Cygwin install (under Windows 10 x64 Pro). Among other things, it
updated all Cygwin components to their newest versions. However, now
when I attempt to start Cygwin terminal (mintty), I'm immediately
greeted with a message box saying
Font does not support ANSI character range
Choosing any other font available in mintty options results in the
very same error message (with a different font name, of course).
Clicking through that message box starts the Cygein terminal, which
appears to work fine.
Do you have a Russian Windows version? Mintty reports this if the
selected font, well, what it says, but that sounds weird for the
The issue is immediately reproducible on all of my Windows 10 Pro x64
machines, once I run the setup executable and update Cygwin.
So, what is going on here? What is the reason for this message and how
do I get rid of it?
If we find out why this is reported in your environment, I will disable
the message for the next release (to come soon then).
