Cygwin install failing trying to uninstall bash
Posted on 2007-12-04
I am updating an existing install of cygwin on my box. I have the latest setup.exe from cygwin.com.
The only package getting updated is bash (3.2.25-16 to 3.2.25-17) -- every other package installed is up-to-date.
However, when trying to update bash I get the following error (Vista, naturally) during the bash uninstall:
setup.exe has stopped working...
How can I fix this problem? Can I manually install the latest version of bash outside of the main installer? Is there a log file that will give me details about what exactly the problem is?
