here's THE thing
i installed cygwin with tar, make and perl as Administrator. then i created virtual user "root" in /etc/passwd copy of Administrator user in Windows uid 0 and there was already "root" group in /etc/group gid 0. Now the problem is that when i logon as administartor (as root in cygwin) and try to un-tar, gunzip any file or even try to install any perl module with cpan, it always exit with error like "cannot change permission uid 1000, gid 1000" or "cannot change permission uid 501, gid 20" and many other error like these. and what i see is that there is no user or group with these uid and gid in passwd and group file, not even any virtual user.
