Guided Cygwin Install

Follow the step-by-step installation guide:

  1. Execute Cygwin setup-x86.exe (32 bit; for 64 bit, use setup-x86_64.exe; if in doubt, use the 32 bit version). When running setup-x86.exe, a window very much like the following should pop up. Just click Next.

  2. Leave the default option and click Next.

  3. Leave the default options and click Next. (This will typically install Cygwin under C:\cygwin or C:\cygwin64 for all users.)

  4. Leave the default options and click Next. (This will store the temporary files in your Download folder. After you have successfully installed Singular on your Windows computer, you may safely delete these files. They will no longer be needed.)

  5. Leave the default options and click Next. (This will require an internet connection.)

  6. Choose a mirror and click Next. We recommend a mirror from your country.

  7. Type "singular" into the Search box and select the singular package.

    This is how it should then look. Click Next.

  8. Cygwin will now download and install Singular.

  9. Leave the default options and click Finish. (This creates a "Cygwin Terminal" or "Cygwin64 Terminal" shortcut on your Desktop.)

  10. To start Singular, start Cygwin via the shortcut, type "Singular" into the console and press Enter.
