$ *cmd /c ver*
Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.14393]
$ *uname -srvmo*
CYGWIN_NT-10.0 2.8.0(0.309/5/3) 2017-04-01 20:47 x86_64 Cygwin

Firefox download gives W10 Windows Defender Run warning 
"from an unknown publisher" and [Don't Run] button - 
/More info/ link also displays [Run Anyway] button - runs okay.

wget download no longer sets x bits and won't run from Explorer, 
cygstart, or bash:

$ cygstart ./setup-2.878.x86_64
Unable to start 'setup-2.878.x86_64.exe': The operating system denied access to the specified file.
$ cygstart ./setup-2.878.x86_64.exe
Unable to start 'setup-2.878.x86_64.exe': The operating system denied access to the specified file.
$ ./setup-2.878.x86_64
-bash: ./setup-2.878.x86_64: Permission denied
$ ./setup-2.878.x86_64.exe
-bash: ./setup-2.878.x86_64.exe: Permission denied

- requires chmod +x to run.
