As to which group to ask, is hard to put a finger on in my opinion. It is one of the drawbacks of mailinglists... if you're following more than one, and especially if one or more generates quite a bit of traffic, it becomes hard to keep track. Pesonally I would prefer forums as opposed to mailing lists, altough forums have their own drawbacks... Maybe newsgroups would be a thing to consider?

Anyway, your questions regarding running lilypond:
```
It seems that your installation of cygwin or lilypond within cygwin did not run completely perfect. You could try to re-install cygwin and the lilypond package.
```That will probably fix your problem.

Any info on using LilyPond (and other cygwin apps) from the windows command line? Mats said...
```You cannot run lilypond from a Windows command prompt, you have to run
it from the Cygwin command prompt, which you open by clicking on the
"Cygwin" icon or start menu item.
```
I thought it was ok, because "C:\cygwin\bin\lilypond.exe -h" worked.
```but then "C:\cygwin\bin\lilypond.exe C:\t.ly" returned that "dlopen" thing
So, how do I run the Cygwin command prompt from a Windows command prompt?
```
I realise these things aren't LilyPond issues, which group would be best
```to post them to?
```
P.S. Double-clicking and LilyPond does work I deleted C:\CYGWIN to uninstall, so I did read that, but I only just read/realised that the installer is also the uninstaller. While re-installing cygwin I got this other Error Message
```in a popup dialog...

mfw.exe
Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

I was "Reinstalling the application", what is that about?
