Cygwin1.dll is missing from your computer


Try to distribute your cygwin.dll with the application. It should be located on the same directory. Try to put your cygwin.dll in your System32 folder and Windows will check cygwin.dll on the same directory where you open your application, on your program list, on System32 and all the directories in the PATH environment variable. And also, try to reinstall the application that you are running.
