However emacs will not run from the shortcut,
Did you install the mintty and run2 packages? See
/usr/share/doc/Cygwin/emacs.README, under "Runtime requirements".
so I tried running emacs
from the bash shell, however it gave a message that this required the
bourne shell. Is there a way to set the Bourne shell as default so i
can launch emacs from it?
There's no need to change your default shell; emacs runs fine under
bash. Could there be something in your .emacs file that's causing the
problem? To eliminate this possibility, start emacs with the command
'emacs -Q', preferably in a mintty window. If something goes wrong,
please copy and paste the error message in your reply. Also, please
follow the problem-reporting guidelines at
including the part about attaching the output of 'cygcheck -s -v -r'.
