64-bit setup: not a valid win32 application

Hi all,

I tried to install 64-bit cygwin today, but I keep encountering the 
error message "setup-x86_64.exe is not a valid Win32 application." I 
found another message that said to clear IE's file cache and try again, 
but that didn't help. Plus, downloading the executable with the wget 
from 32-bit cygwin causes the same problem. Is there something else I 
should try?

FYI, this is a brand new clean install of win7-64.
