- Subject: cygwin.bat/bash fails after install
After a successful installation of cygwin you run cygwin.bat and the
following message flashes briefly on your screen:
bash: can't find configuration file /usr/local/etc/profile.global; exiting.
A work-around was first documented in
The problem can be recreated by doing the following:
Open a command shell (Run/cmd)
Switch to a drive other than C:
Run setup.exe. The install will work, but you will get the error message.
Switch to C: in the command shell before running setup.exe
