Re: Unattended install "remembers" the download option

Thanks Wayne, that was the clue I needed.

Turns out cygwin will use the Windows Registry to store previous install
locations, and in that previous location I had the "download only" option
set.  The setup program used the Registry to find a previous install
location (/etc/setup/setup.rc file) and used that to populate some options.

Look in /etc/setup/setup.rc. I bet the line following "last-action" is
just "Download"
in your file. Mine is "Download,Install" (after a tab).
