Hi there,

I'm wondering if anyone could help me. I've been compiling GROMACS in Windows using CYGWIN and this tutorial - http://megaddl.pcriot.com/installing-gromacs-5-1-1-in-windows-using-cygwin/

However, when I go to make install, I get the following output:

$ make install
[  0%] Built target fftwBuild
[  0%] Built target tng_io_zlib
[  1%] Built target tng_io_obj
[ 98%] Built target libgromacs
[100%] Built target template
[100%] Built target view_objlib
[100%] Built target mdrun_objlib
[100%] Built target gmx
[100%] Built target mdrun_test_objlib
Install the project...
-- Install configuration: "Release"
-- Up-to-date: /usr/local/gromacs/share/gromacs/COPYING
CMake Error at cmake_install.cmake:31 (file):
  file INSTALL cannot set permissions on

Any idea what I should do to rectify this?
