I have re-installed all the 'stuffs' that are required by cygwin and grass.  
Now, when I have successfully created a mapset, when I try to open it, the 
Grass Manager GIS window failed to opened (said Application Error), with the 
GIS manager's window map image hang in the middle of my screen.  The Output 
window and the Map Display window opened successfully.  Would anyone be able 
to help??

Best Regards
Casey Wong
