Just drop in the newest cygwin1.dll over the current one.
Thanks Bill. We took Cygwin1.dll from 1.7.33 and it isn't working yet. We tried 32 and 64 bit versions. Do you have a known working version?
Nsh is only ever 32bit, so i’d try that one. you stopped all NSH related processes on the box, they copied over the NSH\bin\cygwin1.dll ? is 1.7.33 the latest ?
Hold on, tried a restart. Think the 32 might be working! Thanks and stay tuned.
Do you have to install cygwin in order to gain the latest version of cygwin1.dll? Or, is there a recommended site to download just the dll itself?
Unless you are getting it from a trusted source – eg the Cygwin site, i’d be suspicious of pulling dlls from random internet sites. I just install cywgin somewhere – actually the 32bit version because nsh is 32bit only on windows – and pull the dll.
I have the same issue after installed BSA 8.3.2 on a brand new Windows 2012 R2 Standard x64.
I know nsh is only in 32 bits but running a BSA full installation (ened succesfully) the nsh should come by default. So following the default installation steps it goes fine but when running nsh I get:
