 Delete all registry-entries referring to cygnus solutions
 ("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Cygnus Solutions" and
 they are inconsistent. Looks like you once installed Cygwin
 (may be as administrator) in one place (C:/cygwin) and once
 in "u:\tmp1\cygwin\" without first removing the other one
 (from registry).

 Then install again.

 Other approach: correct the registry settings by hand - if you know
 what you are doing.
