Thanks Brian. I've installed the cygwin base setup.exe and I guess I
need to run cygwin.bat to start cygwin, is it correct? If so, now I am
running a cygwin shell on the window and I guess now I am running in a
unix environment, not a window environment. I need to compile the
program with a QT package. Previously, when I was using minGW, both my
program and QT was compiled under window uing WIN32 macro and WIN32
build environment.

I guess I need first to re-install and re-compile the QT for unix
under cygwin. Then I should compile my program for unix with QT under
cygwin, is it correct?

Thank you.
