- Subject: upgrade question
- Organization: Sanger Institute
We have a large c/unix application which uses gtk and which has been
ported to Windows. Our gtk is ancient, as is our cygwin, and we're
looking to upgrade both.
The cygwin was, I gather, seriously hacked (some time ago) to get it to
work, and I don't want to throw it away before establishing that our app
and gtk 2.2.2 and the latest cygwin are all going to work together OK.
Can I just rename my old cygwin directory tree (E:\cygwin) to something
else and install the latest in its place? I did read somewhere that you
shouldn't have two cygwin1.dlls, hence the question.
Thanks in advance
