I've decided to install Cygwin 1.7 under Windows NT 4.0 Workstation. I got the utility (setup-1.7.exe) from the Cygwin Time Machine page on the CrouchingTigerHiddenFruitbat website. In order for Cygwin setup 2.661 to work properly, I had to provide this URL link here: http://ctm.crouchingtigerhiddenfruitbat.org/pub/cygwin/ So, I wanted to install the 2009-09-14 build of FontForge to use under Cygwin 1.7. I have followed all of the procedures to get FonFforge to work properly on this page: https://www.iro.umontreal.ca/~boyer/typophile/doc/ms-install.html The installation took a while and when I tried to type startx under Cygwin, I get this output: Looking to see what could be wrong here, I looked at the XWin.exe file located in L:\bin directory, when I try to execute the file, I get this error: XWin.exe failing to execute due to the missing VerSetConditionMask entry point which is not present under Windows NT 4.0 or earlier. VerSetCondition mask entry point is only present on Windows 2000 and later. Over a decade ago, I remember running FontForge on Windows 98 Second Edition under Virtual PC and I don't think that I can find an old enough version of Cygwin that will work on these versions of Windows anymore. I'm sorry if I'm not providing enough information or if I'm not making sense, but is there any way how I can get an old enough version of Cygwin with the older repositories that will work under Windows NT 4.0? Thank you for your time.
