Re: Cygwin's setup.exe fails to start - error "C:\...\setup.exe is not a valid Win32 application.

a dialog box with an "OK" button only.
I would appreciate any suggestions you can provide. Thank
you for your help.

So you're running Vista then?

Try downloading it again.  I just did so and it ran fine.  Cygwin's
'setup.exe' is a valid Win32 application.  If that doesn't work, make
sure you're running it with administrator privileges.
