>Hi Gerrit,Thanks for your help and explanation. I used setup.exe to install cygwin . Still the shell gets killed . If I try to open the cygwin.dat(under C:\cygwin directory) file , it opens as a shell with title "Finished - cygwin" the prompt itself shows "bad command or filename" . If I try to do anything to this shell , the system prompts me to close it .Basically after installation , I see an icon and if I click on it , the shell opens and gets killed immediately . I need cygwin to install verilog-icarus,perl and gcc. I would appreciate your diagnostics as I couldnt get any more info from the user guide regarding installation and the first steps after installation.I expected cygwin a unix like shell from where I can execute all unix development tools eventually. thanks,Rahul.--- "Gerrit P.
