It worked well.

The only problem I had was that it didn't like being installed
in the usual c:/Program Files. I really hate spaces in filenames,
but I installed it there anyway since that's where a lot of
programs are installed on Windows. psppire gave the error that it
couldn't find the file 'c:/Program', so I guess the space isn't
being quoted when it starts.

Everything did install in c:/Program Files.

I installed it in the default c:/Cygwin, and it ran great.
