Which commands look for c:\cygwin when it is not installed? setup.exe,
and all cygwin programs, honor your mount points. If cygwin has never
been installed, then no programs know to look for c:\cygwin because there
is no cygwin installed and thus no mount points. And until cygwin is
installed, cygwin 'ls' will not work.
that is not true.
If I copy ls.exe and related cygwin dll over a machine with no cygwin
"ls /" will list all files under c:/ , not c:/cygwin. I mistakely thought it
will list c:/cygwin.
that is good to know. thanks.
