Please don't.

In any case, you might wish to consult the license you have for Windows to see if you are permitted to do this...

Another clue - flags -d -n -N probably solve the problem or make the

Wait what? are you using setup-x86.exe? or setup-x86_64.exe?

I have run this command many times, but I can't reproduce this problem.

Despite more than 10 emails from you on this subject, you still haven't mentioned what version of setup you are using.

You might like to try installing the cygwin upx and gdb packages, and then (assuming you are using setup 2.883):

upx -d setup-x86-64.exe
wget https://cygwin.com/setup/setup-2.883.x86_64.dbg
mv setup-2.883.x86_64.dbg setup.dbg

and then, in an elevated shell:

gdb --args setup-x86-64.exe -q -s http://cygwin.mirror.constant.com

at the '(gdb)' prompt

(gdb) r

when your error occurs:

(gdb) bt
