I can't reproduce this.  I tried with shares on Samba, with shares on a
remote NTFS on a machine in the same AD domain, and with shares on a
remote machine which is not member of the domain.  In all three cases I
could install Cygwin from scratch just fine, using the latest

Are you sure the share permissions are sufficient?  In contrast to the
1.5 setup, the 1.7 setup tries to create files and directories with
explicit ACLs.  I assumed that this could make problems, but in my case
it just doesn't make any.  When I created the shares, I just made sure
that the share permissions were sufficient.
