I recently install the latest version of asymptote (2.47), and now Nothing work with asymptote. On windowds 10 system, I have this messages when I want compile a file.asy open with NotePadd++:

asy -V prgm1.asy Process started (PID=4768) >>>

1 [main] asy (12092) C:\Program Files (x86)\Asymptote\asy.exe: *** fatal error - cygheap base mismatch detected - 0x5872410/0x5812410. This problem is probably due to using incompatible versions of the cygwin DLL. Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility and delete all but the most recent version. The most recent version should reside in x:\cygwin\bin, where 'x' is the drive on which you have installed the cygwin distribution. Rebooting is also suggested if you are unable to find another cygwin DLL.

1 [main] asy 4768 fork: child -1 - forked process 12092 died unexpectedly, retry 0, exit code 0xC0000142, errno 11 C:\Program Files (x86)\Asymptote/plain_Label.asy: 321.15: runtime: fork failed: latex\scrollmode

<<< Process finished (PID=4768). (Exit code 1)

Of course, before, I never use Cygwin and I have not cygwin directory on C:\ …

Who can help me to solve this problem and retrieve my use of asy.exe?

Thank a lot. Dominque Collin.

Nota :

On command Windows, when en use the asy command I have this :

Welcome to Asymptote version 2.47 (to view the manual, type help)

So, it's fine, but, for example, when I use this : help, asy crashes and give this message:

> help
  2 [main] asy 6100 child_info_fork::abort: C:\Program Files (x86)\Asymptote\freeglut.dll: Loaded to different address: parent(0x1C0000) != child(0x5980000)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Asymptote/plain.asy: 48.18: runtime: Cannot fork process
