Re: Moving forward from cygwinports




@Chris,
I know that Cygwin and Cygport are not the same.
I was asking if you could perhaps share information on how to properly
install Cygport.

I downloaded it from here.
https://github.com/cygwinports/cygport

In the Cygwin, it had a Windows 32 or 64-bit installer.
This does not come with such.
