you are misunderstanding setup.exe selection windows.

On column "new" click on "skip" at the tcsh row

first click will give you 6.18.00-3,
second click 6.18.00-2
third click will return to skip

If you leave "6.18.00-3"

setup will install tcsh version 6.18.00-3 and will propose the
needed dependency.
