Hi experts, I want to be able to run COBOL on my Windows 10 PC, so i have downloaded and unzipped GnuCobol, and downloaded Cygwin setup.exe.

I ran that with packages recommended in a tutorial, all fine so far.

When I used Cygwin to configure, the process finished with Error: Berkely DB db.h missing

When I looked at the log (attached), the word "error" features 42 times!  

Can anyone out there help me to get this going please?
