You must have found a very old version of LilyPond.
The current instructions are fully relevant for lilypond version 2.0.1,
which is what you will find on all Cygwin mirrors that have been
updated during the last months.

I got it to work now, but perhaps the instructions on the website for an install on Windows (at least on my version of Windows, which is W2K) need to be updated. Double-clicking on the file does not generate the pdf, neither does entering the command 'lilypond test.ly'. But I found that if I enter 'ly2dvi -p test.ly' then I get the desired pdf file.

This is not clear in the instructions on this page:


There is no mention of the ly2dvi command.

But then, perhaps double-clicking on the file WAS supposed to generate the pdf, and something is wrong there still.
