I switched from 32bit to 64 bis a week ago, moved "cygwin" to "cygwin32" and
reinstalled from scratch into a new "cygwin" directory.
I don't think that was a good strategy. Cygwin does use some registry
entries pointing to absolute paths, i.e. you cannot just move a cygwin
installation around and expect it to still work, just like that. That
means your 32-bit Cygwin installation is now most likely quite broken,
and I won't even speculate on the possible havoc running the orphaned
32-bit tools will cause in the 64-bit install now occupying their place.
Just installing the 64-bit version to a new, aptly named folder
cygwin64, would have been both simpler, and more likely to work.
