Folks,



Does any one have a copy of the CYGWIN 1.5 DLL's necessary to run the 3.03

According to both <https://fish-git.github.io/html/hercnew.html>, <http://hercules-390.github.io/html/hercnew.html>, <http://www.hercules-390.eu/hercnew.html> and <http://www.hercules-390.org/hercnew.html>:


What's new in release 3.03

Release date: 20 December 2005

* Native Windows version no longer requires Cygwin (David "Fish" Trout, Roger Bowler, Ivan Warren)


Why would you need Cygwin DLLs?

Windows/2000 hangs on install.
What do you mean "on install"? As I recall, back then, we didn't have any type of installer or anything (no .msi, etc).

I seem to remember the only type of "installing" that needed to be done was to manually download and install the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables (that were of course current at that time). Have you done that?

Where are you getting your binaries from anyway? I'd like to try it myself when I get a chance...

.... except I no longer have such an OLD version of Windows. :(

Hello!
Dave W, give me a few days and I'll see if I can track down the
libraries plus possibly even the programs built using that release of
Cygwin.

It happens at one point in time I made a habit of collecting
practically everything to do with Hercules, including early releases
of Hercules itself, especially one minor release that was last used to
build the diskpacks I use for running VM/370rel6.

I believe that will satisfy the one who breathes through gills. It
would probably surprise the one who's reading this surrounded by an
audience. Oh and Dave W, your statue problems have ended as it left.
