I am having trouble with MSYS2 under windows 7 (x64):
“pacman” commands do not work, and MSYS2 complains about an ‘invalid crypto engine’.
Judging by what I have read about this apparently common issue is that it can have many causes and that it can be time consuming to identify your particular problem and fix it.
So, since it can be assumed that through MSYS2 many people lose significant amounts of time (I already did), are there better alternatives and shouldn’t the standard “how to set up your dev environment” recommendations at least warn us about the problems with MSYS2 and mention alternatives?
If there is no substitute, the addition of a troubleshooting paragraph with a collection of the most common problems + how to fix them would be very nice to have.
In themeantime: Did you come across the ‘invalid crypto engine’ issue? How did you fix it?
Thanks a lot!
