I want to file in a few postings now. They are mainly targeted for the
archives, but also to communicate knowlege on Cygwin. Sure your
annotations are welcome.
On newer windows systems there is a special form user account control
(UAC). Some exectables like install.exe or patch.exe need special
permissions in form of manifests placed into their directory. You can
copy them from Cygwins /usr/bin directory. The example of
install.exe.manifest is given below.
