When I was running the installer (2.416) unders Windows XP Professional,
I pointed it to an invalid install directory and it crashed. This is
I was able to install though once I pointed it to the correct directory.
My download directory was created by version 2.415. Inside of my
download directory is an directory titled
"ftp3%a%2f%2fftp.plig.net%2pub%2fcygwin". In there was a setup.ini and
.setup.ini.swp files and a release directory containing my installs.
Before, when I tried to rename the directory, it gets renamed to the
above mess. I cannot seem to work around it. I think you need this
setup.ini. That is my guess. I never did an install without it.
