Permissions problem installing packages on Cygwin:

Dear All:

During trying to install GNURADIO on a windows machine I am sure that
every
one runs into the following link:

http://gnuradio.org/trac/wiki/WindowsTips

I was having problems with the permissions on my Cygwin installation.
The
document above mentions about the ownership of two directories
/usr/local/{lib,bin}.

I was trying to install gr on windows VISTA. And even though I had the
ownership of the above mentioned directories I still didn’t have
Permission
to the folders.

For Windows Vista:

Make sure the User Account Control is turned OFF. That blocks the
permission to the folders, even though you have the ownership.

Wanted to share this with the group.

Thank you loads.

Regards,

Shabbir
