Re: Moving compiled application?

juman wrote:
I have two separate installations of Cygwin testing things out before
moving one of them to an USB stick. On one of the installations I have
everything needed for compiling installed as gcc etc. And on the other I
only have the base installation.

Now I am trying to compile an application on the development one and
move it to the other. So after compiling it I just tar the whole folder
and copy it over to the other one. I then follow what happens when doing
a "make install" so everything goes to the right place.

So when all is in place I try to start the application and nothing... No
error message, no output, nothing... I just press enter and it gives me
the next line. Any ideas how I can look into what is missing or do you
have a better way to move an application between two systems like this?

You could do a cygcheck on the app to see what it wants in terms of DLLs.
You may be missing one or more on your minimal installation.  Other than
that, my recommendation is to debug it.
