We have updated the setup.exe executables on cygwin.com in preparation
for the upcoming release of Cygwin 1.7.22.
There are now two versions of setup. setup-x86.exe will install and
update the 32-bit version of Cygwin. setup-x86_64.exe will install and
update the 64-bit version of Cygwin.
Although it is not strictly necessary, it is a good idea to clear out
your download directory prior to running these programs. The new setup
exe's create a different directory structure in the download directory
and do not recognize the old layout. So, any files left over from
running older versions of setup.exe will be ignored by the new version
Older setup.exe's will no longer work with the setup.ini files used by
the newer setup.exe versions so you'll definitely need to download the
new version of the setup program if you want to install or update
32-bit Cygwin setup: http://cygwin.com/setup-x86.exe
64-bit Cygwin setup: http://cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe
Or, just click on the links at http://cygwin.com/ .
The old setup version (which only installed the 32-bit version of
Cygwin) is still available and will be available for a few days. But,
please don't rely on its continued existence.
