No, just rerun 'setup.exe' and tell it you want to install
all packages.  It will download only those that it has not 
completely downloaded already.

Usually this is only necessary when a package (or installation) has been
"damaged" somehow so that starting over makes sense.  It's essentially
equivalent to uninstalling the package (or installation) and then installing
it again.
