Installing error: cygwin1.dll not found


I recently installed cygwin on my Windows XP but when I try to run cygwin I get an error saying ?This application (bash.exe) has failed to start because cygwin1.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.?

I also got a similar message during the initial installation and it keeps coming up on attempted re-installations (when I tried re-installing the default packages). After checking the FAQs I identified the cygwin1.dll in the cygwin package and have tried to install it specifically on the Select Packages setup page by switching the toggle button from ?skip? to ?1.5.18-1.? When I click next, the setup detects additional dependent packages that need to be downloaded, but when I continue I get one of the following two errors:

?Fatal error: uncaught exception
Thread: install
Type: St16invalid_argument
Message: URL Scheme not registered!?

or ?Can?t open (null) for reading: no such file?

What am I doing wrong? I also found a similar problem in the mailing list archives, entitled ?Error while installing cygwin? from Abhinav Varshney, dated 11/5/05. Thanks for any help that you can give.

Additional info:
setup.exe version 2.510.2.2
cygwin dll release version 1.5.18-1
