Installing Cygwin on Server 2012 R2 failing

Hello,

I've been trying to install Cygwin on a Server 2012 R2 box, but the install keeps failing. I am using the latest installer (2.850, 32-bit), and I have tried multiple mirrors.

Relevant portion of setup.log.full: http://pastebin.ca/2836397

After the install, I have a broken cygwin. mintty fails to run (it pops up a window briefly which then disappears). I can run bash, but commands don't work because $PATH is not set up properly.

Thanks in advance for any help,

Sam
