'make' command still not working on cygwin

Based on previous forum discussions, I tried to install cygwin with 'make' installed from develop during installation. I can even see 'make.exe' in bin folder, but still while running the make command, it still shows error.

make depend
make: /bin/csh: Command not found.
make: *** [all] Error 127

I was confused in one other part. Should I put the bin folder in some specific location or just wherever it is placed during cygwin installation? I was running VIC model, do I need to place the bin folder inside VIC source code folder.

Your make installation is just fine. The particular make file you're building requires csh (the C shell). It should be in the installer under Shells.

Thanks Elemecca. Initially I just tried to install csh from Shell, it didn't work again with the same errors..however, I tried to install all components for that Shell, and I am able to run the model with make command. At least I passed this step..Thanks a lot. I appreciate it.
