 Oh, and another thing occurred to me:

  How come bash.exe is clearly existing in the bin dir here ^^^^

.... but it thinks the package is there ?  That's strange; what's actually in
the bin dir?  Were there any errors in setup.log when it unpacked bash?

  Maybe if you run through setup twice, the first time round get it to do
absolutely nothing except reinstall bash, then try again once bash is working
with a reinstall-on-top as described in the last post.
