Re: Setup failure: mount error

That's what I thought. My problem was in trusting the Registry's search command.

Actually, the search is relative to whatever key you have selected. So, to search the whole registry you have to select the root.

Unfortunately, it's still failing.

Are there any other places in the registry that Cygwin data is kept?

At the moment, it looks like I'm going to have to scrub Windows and re-install it.

I suppose before that, I can try installing from our stable mirror.
Perhaps the Cygwin on the mirror site is badly buggy (despite all MD5
checksums being correct).

Right now I'll try again, this time deleting both known keys, deleting all the download files, deleting the 300kb of installed Cygwin files,
rebooting, and starting again.

That didn't work, either. Same alert panel titled "mount" that says: "The operation completed successfully."

This happens at the 99% Cygwin Setup stage, Downloading.  Progress bars look
to be about 80% for "Progress:", 99 or 100% for "Total:", and about 5%
for "Disk:".
