Re: Latest setup.exe
I tried the beta version Max suggested and it also
exhibits the same behaviour on my win2k laptop;
i.e. sucks up huge mem (depletes VM), and yet after
more than 1 hour of running, it still says 1% of
base-files 1.1-1 is installed. The "total" progress
meter shows only about a sliver of "progress" :)
Am running win2K with latest updates (service pack 3).
Also, I have been updating my cygwin installation for
over a year now, and this is the first time I have
encountered this problem.
