I was downloading the first Cygwin setup installation located at I tried installing directly from the internet, using all the default settings, such as root directory: C:/Cygwin. However, the installation gets stuck whenever it starts installing something like, "/etc/postinstall/". I have turned off my firewall. Is there anything else that could be causing this problem?
