Re: cygwin installation fails in Windows 10 when running with --quite-mode

I tried again on the clean Windows VM

setup-x86_64.exe -q -B -R C:\Users\user\Downloads -s

After that I tried

setup-x86_64.exe -q -B -R C:\Users\user\Downloads -s
http://cygwin/mirror/constant.com -p wget,screen

Both worked. Looks like my bad
