Unfortunately, the Cygwin Time Machine hasn't been archiving setup.exe

Well, ...

dk@espanola /tmp> strings setup.exe | grep setup-version | cut -d ' ' -f 3

Hmmm... that doesn't seem to work for me on linux.... :( And, it doesn't work for me on Cygwin either?! This is what I get:

% strings -a w:/webserver/ftp/pub/cygwin/setup.exe | grep -i setup

This is the latest setup.exe from the cygwin website too.  I'm at a loss
as to why it works for you and not me.

... will work on every version as far back as
