Hi All,

According to, "Run setup.exe any time you want
to update or install a Cygwin package. ":

jeffrey@descartes ~
$ setup.exe

Result is a message box that states "Please go to the Control Panel to
install and configure system components."

Navigate to Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs. Cygwin is *not* listed.

I'm obviously doing something wrong. Any ideas where my ability (or
lack of) to follow instructions failed?
