My WAG is that your permissions for /bin are something like the
$ ls -ld /bin
drwx------ 3 Administ None 212992 Sep 5 13:07 /bin
Am I correct? If so, then when setup.exe creates a file under /bin,
Windows is causing it to inherit its parent directory's permissions.
BTW, I helped someone on firstname.lastname@example.org with a different
symptom but the same root cause.
