That's weird, it works fine for me. Which shell are you using? The
default in cygwin in bash, which is the one I use, and just "cd
$AMBERHOME" works just fine.

Well, that's another thing. This is unrelated to the error you
reported before, but yes, you need csh. In Cygwin, "csh" is actually a
symlink to "tcsh":

  $ which csh
  $ ls -l /usr/bin/csh
  lrwxrwxrwx 1 adm None 8 Jun 7 15:47 /usr/bin/csh -> tcsh.exe

The problem is that tcsh is not installed by default. You need to run
setup.exe again and explicitly select it from the "shells" menu. The
link from csh is created automatically.
