please let me know w2hat I can do to fix this issue as I would really like to give this software a try on my windows machine because it works great on my linux machines

Dear Robert - This pretty much always indicates a really old version of cygwin.
If "john" has an older version packaged with it, then the distributors need to
move more toward the present.  If you are building it yourself, try a current
stable version of cygwin.  If the program has source available and is known to
work under cygwin, then it is usually not too hard to build yourself ...
