  There should be no need to go that far.  If you just re-run setup.exe,
choosing "Install from internet"  and then clicking "Next" all the way through
without altering anything, it should just update your installation and, as
part of that, it will verify the installed packages and attempt to install
anything missing.  So hopefully it'll only download anything that failed last
time, or if it downloaded ok but the install step failed last time, it'll just
re-run the install step.

  It should be much easier than redownloading the whole thing.  If for any
reason it doesn't work, you could try manually selecting the "libintl3"
package on the package chooser page to "Reinstall".

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
