cygwin do it yourself? or included in pgi intallation file?

On Windows previous releases PGI provided cygwin configured for the compilers, has this stopped?

The 6.2 install guide mentions an install option for cygwin, can anyone tell me how to excersize this option? Or must I install cygwin independantly?

Hi ignatius,

Unlike previous versions, the PGI 6.2 compilers are Windows native and do not require Mingwa and a specific version of Cygwin. However, the PGI install package does include Cygwin but will skip installing it if the another Cygwin is already installed.

Do you already have Cygwin installed? If so, then you can use this version or uninstall it, then re-install the PGI package.
