    I tried to do the same but it was a lot much harder (it stilk not works, but that's not the point). I had many problems with paths with spaces (maybe in Germany, the program files folder hav no spaces ?) --MatM 2011-10-03T23:20:39 (CEST)

    There are spaces in paths in German too. We have for example "Dokumente und Einstellungen" und "Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0". That gives no problem for me. You might have a look at the tips for paths in Another problem is the length of the paths. You cannot put the source deep in a tree or at root level, but put it on first or second level.

    I try to build all without unit tests. Issuing

    /opt/lo/bin/make build

    still runs all unit tests.

    What should I do to disable them *when making all*? Thank you. --Mikekaganski (talk) 2015-04-30T20:20:38 (UTC)

    In section "Install Cygwin Requirements" copy&paste the command does not work. Problems:
    (A) Copy results in line breaks and the ^ (which I assume is for skipping the line breaks) does not work. I have pasted it into an editor and removed all line breaks.
    (B) The command cannot start setup-x86_64.exe, but I had to use .\setup-x86_64.exe

    Further problem:
    While running setup-x86_64.exe I get the error message

    To be sure, were you running this in the legacy cmd prompt? Not PowerShell? Because the instructions say you should use cmd.

    I have used PowerShell. That is what you get with item "Terminal (Admin)" from the start menu. Regina (talk) 10:31, 5 December 2023 (UTC)
    Ok, you have to instead type cmd or Command Prompt in Start Menu.
