Cygwin "cannot execute binary file" error

3 New Member
Hi all,
i just finish to install cygwin on windows XP adding also gcc compiler module.
After I tried to execute a file called fstsg.0.3-sparc (www.fstha.com) used to cript a Unix shell, I receive an error saying : "cannot execute binary file".
Someone can help me to solve this problem? I need configure/add some library/plugin in order to execute correctly this file?

Here is a snapshot related to this error:

[testPC@IVIMNB ...cygwin/fstsg.0.3]$ ./fstsg.0.3-sparc TestScript.ksh
./fstsg.0.3-sparc: ./fstsg.0.3-sparc: cannot execute binary file


Many thanks

Make sure that the file, fstsg.0.3-sparc, has execute permissions set on it. If you are not sure, just do the following:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. chmod +x fstsg.0.3-sparc
  2.  
Regards,

Jeff

Already done. This file and the above directory have the full permission:

28 -rwxrwxrwx 1 admin mkgroup-l-d 26492 Oct 28 2006 fstsg.0.3-sparc
20 -rwxrwxrwx 1 admin mkgroup-l-d 18720 Oct 28 2006 fstsg.0.3-x86
4 -rwxrwxrwx 1 admin mkgroup-l-d 1686 Oct 28 2006 fstsg.0.3.READM E.txt

Well, if it is having a problem executing a binary file, then I would wonder about the stability of the binary. Is there a checksum you can check to ensure the file is ok? My thought is, is the file at all corrupt.

Hi Jeff,
the files are correct. In order to test they I just copy all the directory and put in a Unix machine, and tried to execute. They worked fine.
I also tried to execute in a different CygWin enviroment (bash, csh, tcsh), but the is still.
Probably these file are compiled with a different interpreter not recognized on my CygWin installed version, but I don't know how to find it....

I also perform the commend file on these files, here the result:

[testPC@IVIMNB ...cygwin/fstsg.0.3]$ file fstsg.0.3-sparc
fstsg.0.3-sparc: ELF 32-bit MSB executable SPARC Version 1, dynamically linked, not stripped

[testPC@IVIMNB ...cygwin/fstsg.0.3]$ file fstsg.0.3-x86
fstsg.0.3-x86: ELF 32-bit LSB executable 80386 Version 1, dynamically linked, not stripped

Regards,
Max

After completing my app, I moved it to the production server. It ran ok for two days on the production server. Then, I made a change to the login process, which forced a dynamic compile(I do not pre-compile). At first, I would get the error only on the page I changed but within a couple hours, now I get the error on any page. IIS lockup is not installed.
