Did you try holding your breath and counting to 3 before trying again?  If
not, try that.  It always works for me.

Is the above information not useful enough for you to solve the problem?
Well, right back at ya! ;-)  Really, you've provided no information at all
other than you see some error when using this file.  Please read and follow
the problem reporting guidelines found here:


My WAG is that if you actually need dos.h, you want the Mingw version of
gcc/g++ that uses MSVCRT and not cygwin1.dll.  You might want to investigate
that.  See <>
