Any help appreciated. Thanks.
Just to chime in on this (which is OT for the list, I believe, but...)
I do collect a smattering of setup versions overtime, but not all.
There's an assumption that newer versions of Setup can largely handle
installing older releases (up to a point, I'll grant).
That may not necessarily be true in the future, which is why I do collect
snapshots of setup in case someone finds the latest doesn't work for them.
Still, as Cygwin and Setup have evolved over time, I do try and ensure
older Setup is available just in case.
If there's a specific version of Setup the OP is looking for, I can check
my archives to see if I have it, or something near it.
