If that's a requirement, you will need to provide a local mirror with
the exact state of packages that your security check is goint to vet.

You don't want to install into %PROGRAM_FILES% or WIndows' folder
virtualization will play bad tricks on you if you ever try to write to
anywhere inside that installation directory.  You also don't want to
package up an installation to install on further machines, instead
you'll need to do an installation on each machine.

Well, at the moment you can still select the previous version from setup
and have a reasonable chance of everything working correctly.  But
Cygwin really is a rolling distribution, so your security process is
fundamentally at odds with how it is updated.
