I'm using a freshly downloaded copy of https://cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe,
which reports itself to be "Setup.exe version 2.884 (64 bit)".
I use http://mirrors.kernel.org
Every time I run the setup program, it reports:
The current ini file is from a newer version of setup-x86_64.exe. If you
have any trouble installing, please download a fresh version from
I've confirmed that the ini file at
I was able to find https://cygwin.com/setup/setup-2.891.x86_64.exe via
a Google search, which works around the problem, but the underlying
problem is still there: the default setup program is inconsistent
with the setup.ini files on the mirrors.
I've been having this problem for several weeks (I don't know exactly
when it started). I've checked several other mirror sites, and the
setup.ini for all the ones I've checked also specify version 2.891.
If I ignore the warning messages, the discrepancy doesn't seem to
cause any problems.
I'm using Windows 10.
