Suggest the first step in your process should be to download
	https://cygwin.com/setup-x86.exe
as you will get warnings if setup .exe and .ini versions mismatch (setup just
changed again).

Use -B to install for current user only, or run under admin account and use -W
to wait for elevated child,
You could add -v to get more info in ROOT/var/log/setup.log (appended summaries)
and .../setup.log.full (last run details).

You might want to add -g to be able to rerun and keep versions in old installs
upgraded in sync with new installs, as Cygwin does rolling releases and supports
only current releases; you might also need this for initial installs to get base
packages: it's been a long time since I tried any initial installs.

You should not need to run cmd unless you want to run a bat[ch] or c[om]m[an]d
script.
