I have tried all stuff that has been mentioned in the user manual and also looked for help elsewhere ... could not figure the problem why it is failing. Installed the latest verions of Cygiwn also. Even then i am getting the error listed down. 

Suggest Please

Thank you for a problem report. Sorry, but we do not really support Cygwin on Windows.
