I am a fresh user freshly installing MinGW-5.1.6.exe + MSYS-1.0.11.exe + msysDTK-1.0.1.exe + msysCORE-1.0.11-bin.tar.gz on my Windows XP without any error or complaint from the installers. MinGW is installed in C:\MinGW and I answered C:/MinGW to the MSYS installer when prompted.

However when I open a MSYS console using the desktop icon and type vim at the prompt, I get a 'sh: vim: command not found'. Is vim not supposed to be part of the MSYS package? Is it possible to install it at a later stage (using the binary version of the MinGW download page, not by recompiling it)?
