RE: Unattended installation with locally downloaded packages

Dear Laszlo,

I think you also need to give the --site option and likely also --no-admin if you want an unattended install.

You can find a (lengthy) batchfile which installs cygwin (unattended is an option) and excutes a shell script using it here:


The final call to the setup is in line 365, but you should also look into how %CYGWIN_OPT% is set depending on options.

The wait for setup complete in case you need an admin install and the unattended configuration of a user profile (first login) following might also be of interest.
