Thanks, I did and I can't find anything wrong. Where does setup.exe gets
the information from? I tried several versions, the current official one,
the new snapshot and something older I have lying around. They all do
this. They are in my distribution directory with all the Cygwin downloads
and all show the correct location of distribution directory and installation
directory. Some junk in the registry?
