Dear GAP Forum,
Dear Prof. Freitag,

GAP3 is bundled with a rather outdated version of Cygwin
(a POSIX emulator library).
That Cygwin version appeared before Win XP was released,
and no wonder it might refuse working on XP.

It should be possible to build GAP-3 for Win XP.
Please let me know if you still need it.

Best regards,

Dmitrii Pasechnik
