Virtex-II Pro Developer's Kit - I cannot find the Cygwin install dialog


Keywords: PC, install, Cygwin, V2PDK, GNU

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
After the GNU installer has completed on a PC installation, I cannot find the Cygwin install dialog.


According to the installation instructions, the Cygwin tools are installed right after the GNU software development tools.

Actually, however, the Cygwin installation starts before the GNU installer finishes -- it is in the background, behind the GNU installer window. Therefore, you will not see it until the GNU installer finished, and only when you minimize all other windows above the Cygwin dialog. In some situations, the Cygwin installer will be elsewhere on the screen, which can also cause confusion.
