    Do I really need to install Cygwin? ( I am on a work computer)

    I am on a work computer and I think they would frown on me installing the program.

    Thanks!

    I installed Cygwin however I am still having trouble getting the command "make test" (page 23) to work.
    I tried installing make utilities but it still does not work for me.
    Thanks

    I installed additional modules in Cygwin as instructed from a youtube.com video. (I am on Windows XP)
    -Basically in the Cygwin setup I selected the "view" button then searched for "make" and installed the GNU utility.
    -I had to add c:\cygwin\bin to my environment path as well.
    -I also needed to restart my computer.
