network installation failed, new diagnostics
Sun Jan 15 22:49:00 GMT 2017
I have some new insights; first, I tried with a range of older versions
of setup.exe (from the cygwin time machine) but all failed, so its not a
regression as I had speculated.
Then I tried to run setup.exe without elevation, by elevating before
(running mintty as adminstrator). So I noted (and could have checked
this earlier...) that the involved network mounts were not fully
L:/TGI/cygwin7 on / type ntfs (binary,auto)
L: on /cygdrive/l type ntfs (binary,posix=0,user,noumount,auto)
//22.214.171.124/Labormaterial/TGI/cygwin7 on / type ntfs (binary,auto)
After fixing the mount:
net use L: '\\126.96.36.199\Labormaterial'
setup.exe works as expected.
Not being familiar with details of Windows permission stuff and
user-specific mounts myself, does this help to analyse and maybe even
fix the situation?
