A coworker of mine has 12.9. She says that when she installed 12.9, Cygwin was also installed on her computer. In her “Start->PGI Workstation->Command Shells 12.9” menu, she has options to start a 32 or 64 bit bash shells.
I also have PGI 12.9 installed but do not have Cygwin or the bash shells. I have the installer (pgiwsx64_129.exe) but when I run it I do not see an option to install Cygwin.
Did 12.9 come with a Cygwin installer? If so, how do I install it?
