XTC68 install.sh freezes under Cygwin under Win10

Postby Fabrizio » Fri Apr 03, 2020 8:26 am

Hi everyone,

I am not able to install xtc68 under Cygwin under Windows 10.
I have followed the instructions (copying and unzipping the files to the "support" directory, installing dependencies, etc.)
It freezes whenever I run "install.sh" and no files from "support" are copied to /usr/local/
It may be a Windows 10 issue, though as I see the built-in anti-malware take a lot of CPU as I run the script.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I haven't used Cygwin for years. What happens if you disable the Anti-malware, or whitelist the installer?

There's also a Linux on Windows "thing" these days too, I believe. Have you tried that instead?
