I use the graphical file explorer to make the file  visible on screen and 
then I double left click msysDTK-1.0.1.exe.
Vista then asks me if I want to run the file. I reply yes.
Where do I instal the file given that is in c:/soft/downloads and 
I have not touched or

I use msys cmd prompt, cd to c:/soft/downloads.

whoami =>

-rwxr-xr-x 1 Admin Adminst ...

chmod a+w msys*

does not change file permisions

msysDTK-1.0.1.exe =>

sh: ./msysDTK-1.0.1.exe permission denied

ie I cannot execute msysDTK-1.0.1.exe via mys command prompt

Yours Sincerely Stephen Grant Brown
