python scripts in Cygwin provided with PGI Workstation


I want to configure and setup a UNIX based application in Windows HPC Server 2008. I am using the Cygwin environment provided with PGI Workstation to do that.

The setup of the application has some python codes and when I try to execute that, I get the message:

/bin/env: python: No such file or directory.

Can you please tell me how do I install python in the PGI based Cygwin environment or any other alternative for that ?

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Kunal,

PGI only ships a minimal Cygwin package. For additional Cygwin tools please download these packages directly from Cygwin


Hi Mat,

Thanks for your reply.
I found a workaround for this. I downloaded python ( Python 2.7 Windows X86-64 installer ) from and installed it on my Windows system. And then added the path to python.exe in the PATH environment variable in the Cygwin provided by PGI. I am now able to run the python scripts.

Thanks & Regards,
