I'm doing more or less the same thing, i run setup in completely quiet
mode specifying all i want and it is working well.
You must run :
setup.exe -q -n -5 -L -R install_directory
The only thing is, as i'm using install from local directory and i want
to install everything there is in this directory, i have to modify the
setup.ini to put all the packages i had into default group to, as this
they will be installed.
But it seems that the setup is running for only user and not all user.
The solution i found was simply, after the end of the setup, copy all
entry in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Cygnus Solutions\Cygwin\mounts v2\
to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cygnus Solutions\Cygwin\mounts v2\ and
this enable cygwin for every user.
