Re: Error: procedure entry point in cygwin1.dll

Hello all

Thanks, Christopher, for your answer

I do trust the wisdom of the archives, that's why I checked my whole hard
disk for any other copy of cygwin1.dll, and why I rebooted three times before
posting the message.
There definitely must be another reason for the problem.
Any suggestion?

two versions
of the DLL around, or you need to reboot.  There are no other reasons for
this problem.
