This started when I ran
Cygwin and all of a sudden I got the error message:
E185: Cannot find color scheme 'alduin' when I didn't used to get this error prior to today.
I had been messing with installing Cygwin packages, and must've inadvertently installed a new version of
vim(?): I now have the folders
When I run
vim the splash screen does say it's version 8.0.1567. And I guess I put
.../vim74/ and not
My question: how does
/usr/bin/vim.exe get associated with a particular version of vim? I.e. when I run "
vim" why is vim 8.0 invoked and not vim 7.4?

Note, above, that
/usr/bin/vim is not a softlink to the executable in one of my two vim versions' directories, which is how I'd have assumed this version-selection would've been done.
