Re: setup 2.427 runtime error

Max, et. al.:
Another data point on this.
1. Dropped all current mirrors from my list, added one (;
2. Set every package except the Cygwin dll to keep/skip;
3. Tried to install --
Same crash at the end of downloading.

My SWAG on this is that one of the local data files that tell setup where and what to download has some corrupted data. That might result in an unrecognized "scheme" being passed to the download progie.

If you (y'all) could be so kind as to outline what files save the mirror list AND the list of installed packages, I'll prowl through them and see what I can see. Still and all, it isn't a very graceful way to die.
