I tried to install wget version-1.14 (tar.xz package) on cygwin, but it failed. My steps were

tar -xf wget-1.14.tar.xz
cd wget-1.14
./configure 

After some time, it spits a configure error.

How to install wget in cygwin under Windows 7, then?

Could you give us the error it gave? –  wingedsubmariner Sep 7 '13 at 16:08

wget is also available as a Cygwin package, so you could just install it using the Cygwin installer. As of this writing, the latest version available is wget-1.13.4.

If you just want to use wget, using the Cygwin package is easier than compiling it yourself. However, compiling from source should also work. If configure complains, then most likely some dependency (such as a library) is missing.
