Greetings, Nellis, Kenneth!

>> A new version of Setup, release 2.876, has been uploaded to
>>    https://cygwin.com/setup-x86.exe     (32 bit version)
>>    https://cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe  (64 bit version)
>> ...

> Not a biggie, but thought I'd mention that when I installed
> the new 64-bit version through my bash script (using wget), 
> on launching it Windows complained that permissions were 
> out of order and that I didn't have permission to run it.

> Deleting that download and installing the normal way through
> the web page worked just fine.

This is to be expected, if you've downloaded the file into Cygwin ACL-enforced
You'll have to explicitly +x it to be able to execute the file.

With best regards,
