That means you don't have csh in your Cygwin installation. Cygwin
provides tcsh, which has the same syntax. Check if you have tcsh installed:

    $ which tcsh

if it's there, you should get something like:


as a result. Then there are 2 possibilities:

1. If it is *not* there, you need to run Cygwin setup program again, and
make sure to select tcsh from the "shells" menu.

2. If it *is* there, but cygwin still can't find csh, you can make csh
to be a symbolic link to tcsh. (That's actually what it should be if
tcsh is installed correctly.):
    $ cd /usr/bin
    $ ln -s tcsh.exe ./csh

Then try installing Amber again.
