A setup release candidate is available at:

   https://cygwin.com/setup/setup-2.878.x86.exe
   https://cygwin.com/setup/setup-2.878.x86_64.exe

Both worked flawlessly for me.  I run Windows 10,
Creator Update (most recent release AFAIK).

One difference from before is that I get a Windows
Defender SmartScreen pop-up.  I have to click the
"More info" option and then a "Run anyway" button
appears, allowing me to run the setup program.

AFAICT, this happens only the *first* time I run
the setup program.  Thereafter, WIndows Defender
does not complain.

Thanks for testing.

Is Windows 10 1703 more picky about letting you run unsigned executables?

I think so - I don't recall needing to do this with setup ever before.

As discussed previously, the problems with getting setup signed are logistical rather than technical.

It's not a huge deal, particularly since it happens only the
first time I run setup.  I suppose the concern would be users
who don't figure out the right clicks or who are suspicious
of doing that, and automated installs.
