- Subject: Windows find.exe crashes during Cygwin setup
I'm encountering a problem while trying to install Cygwin on a Window XP box
from a local directory of packages. Several times during the setup
procedure, Windows pops up an error message informing me that the Windows
find.exe utility has encountered a problem and needs to be closed. Needless
to say, I'm left with a broken installation afterwards, with missing files
and libraries, no user profile, broken links, etc. I downloaded the package
from a few different mirrors, but can't seem to get through the setup
procedure without receiving these errors. Any ideas? I've searched the
archives, faq, net, etc, and didn't find any reference to such a problem.
Any help would be appreciated.
