Re: Cygwin Setup 99% (fwd)
The solution I found to setup hanging was to use the Windows Task
Manager to kill the cygpath process (not the setup process) that causes
the hang. This enables setup to complete the rest of the install. The
reason nothing quite works for you is that setup runs post-install
scripts at the end and if you kill setup when it hangs, these scripts
don't all get run.
I presume that killing this process will still cause something to
misbehave because some part of the install has failed - but I haven't
found what that problem might be yet.
