- Subject: setup bug...
In setup-1.7, on the "Select Local Package Directory" page, it says:
Select a directory where you want Setup to store the installation files
it downloads. The directory will be created if it does not already
So, I type in a directory name:
C:\TEMP exists, but cygwin17 does not. I get the following error popup:
Could not change dir to C:\TEMP\cywin17: The system cannot find the file
Abort Retry Ignore.
If I manually create the cygwin17 directory (and click Retry),
everything proceeds normally.
This seems to be a new error, because this used to work. I won't have
much time to track this down myself for a couple of weeks, so I figured
I should document it here...
