My experience of using Dogtail to test web apps is based on Epiphany on
Fedora Code, on versions 4, 5 and 6 of FC, if I remember.

I don't have any experience of trying Dogtail on Cygwin: you may be the
first to try this configuration.

Dogtail is layered on top of AT-SPI, so you will only be able to use
Dogtail meaningfully if AT-SPI is working and exposing meaningful
metadata about the GUI.  For web testing, you'll only get good results
if the DOM tree of the website is exposed via AT-SPI.

Have you managed to get the "sniff" application (part of Dogtail)
running?  This is a good tool for debugging AT-SPI.  What results do you

What specific errors are occurring?

Hope this helps
