When I install msys using the current release file MSYS-1.0.10.exe

I get the following error:

C:\msys\1.0\postinstall>..\bin\sh.exe pi.sh

AllocationBase 0x0, BaseAddress 0x715B0000, RegionSize 0x150000, State 0x10000

C:\msys\1.0\bin\sh.exe: *** Couldn’t reserve space for cygwin’s heap, Win32 error 6


I would appreciate any hints on what the reason for this error could be or any suggestions for alternative versions to try.

(I do not need the MinGW system itself, just MSYS)


with regards
