I am sure that this is a FAQ, so please accept my apologies. I googled and found nothing, though.

I download and tried to build in Cygwin, but got an error (below). For me, there is no better debugger, but my new company insists on development under Windows. Do you know of any Windows port?

Really sorry to disturb you with this.

Here are two comments that don't really answer your question.

1. I have a laptop that I wanted to have Windows on for networking. I got ddd working under cygwin, but it was so slow that it was almost unusable. I then set up a dual boot with ubuntu. This was very easy to do (at least for one familiar with Linux).

2. It seems to me that it is a much bigger step to go from a development platform in Windows to that in cygwin, than the step from cygwin to a dual boot with ubuntu. Thus if they were to allow you to do the former they should be willing to let you do the latter. In your case you would probably want to set everything up using a virtual machine such as vmware.
