Re: Setup Failure

I download in the following steps:
1: Download Setup.exe from
2: Execute Setup.exe
   a. Specify an Internet Download.
   b. Select a mirror (mostly '').
   c. Download source and executable of packages of interest.
3: Execute Setup.exe
   a. Specify a local install.
   b. Select packages (from Setup created folder).
   c. Install.

During the last download (Step 2) there was a failure during the download. It appeared to be at the end of the download and seemed to have no serious consequences. I installed the software (Step 3) on my work computer without any problems.

After the work installation, I copied Setup.exe and Setup.ini and the folder in Step 2b. I brought the files home, copied the files to my home computer and attempted to do a local install (Step 3b). The install failed (Step 3c) with the indicated message(s), see below.

If there is other information which is normally needed in order to address this problem please tell me. I will (then) normally send all the indicated information. In this case, I didn't think that 'cygcheck -c' or other information would be an aid.

Any help?


PS: I hope that this isn't HTML.
