Wow.  We're still talking about this?  It really isn't that hard.

Just type "util-linux" in the search box for setup.exe.

If you're looking for the package which holds more.exe then search for
more.exe in the package search.  You'll then find util-linux.

There are enough packages in the distro which include the word "more"
that you won't find util-linux in the first thirty matches.  It is on
the main search page though if you scroll down.
