Re: setup

Brian, thanks for asking the pertinent questions, they have solved the
problem.  I did an Install from Internet the first time; the second, I chose
Download from Internet but didn't realize I had to run setup.exe again to
complete the install.  Once I did that it installed fine, put an icon on my
desktop, etc.

Also, sorry I missed the topic(s) in the archives.  I think what I did is
search for "cygwin.exe", which of course turned up nothing since cygwin.bat
would have been what I wanted.  I'll spend some time just browsing so I have
an idea of what's in there when future problems arise.
