If you install gVim separately, after you've installed it, make sure you're getting the right one from Cygwin by typing "which gvim" at a Cygwin prompt. If you get the one inside cygwin, you'll need to adjust your Windows path so the correct gVim is found. I only have vim (not gVim) in my Cygwin bin folder, so I avoid the problem entirely.

(text version, my fwall blocks > unknown extensions!) How did you get your gVim? in Windows there can be several versions: 1. Compiled in Cygwin by make -f Makefile, this could run in cygwin/X 2. Compiled in Cygwin by make -f Make_cyg.mak, this is Windows native version compiled by cygwin 3. Compiled with VC by nmake -f Make_mvc.mak, this is Windows native version compiled by vc If you want gVim, I recommend a Windows native version in Windows, not the cygwin/X version. -- Sincerely, Pan, Shi Zhu. ext: 2606
