uhm ...

Data stored in the registry (Cygwin_root, local_repo):

For a 32-bits instance of Cygwin,

For a 64-bits instance of Cygwin,
    see HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Cygwin

.. but if you are using a fixed location for your Cygwin_root and
for your local_repo (distribution directory), why not:

 - create a shortcut to the setup executable ...
 - and add -n -R x:/your_root -l x:/_your_local_repo as arguments
   to the invocation of the executable
   ( x = your drive letter)

and force yourself to use that shortcut?

That would override any default (either by the setup executable or
by you in the past).

.. and save you the trouble of posting to this list.
