  • Download and install python (2.5) and scons (0.96.1) Windows native versions. (I couldn't find a cygwin scons package)
These are direct download links for the versions I used, but prefere later versions if available.

  • Update PATH environment var to point to python. Go to properties window of "My Computer" under the "Advanced" tab.
    • In my case I had to add this:
      ;C:\Python25
    • from cygwin console use scons.bat from cmd console, just scons
