Re: setup.exe crashing

I went to follow Larry and Dave Korn's advice and move out bash.lst.gz
but it was in use.
procexp showed a bunch of dead DrWtsn and setup's, so i rebooted
renamed the file and start again (i have the latest setup.exe).

Same thing, setup and DrWtsn quit unexpectedly.

I can send the bash.lst.gz to Dave directly in case that helps.

Is there a way to delete cygwin and start over?
Can i blow away c:/temp, c:/cygwin/etc/setup, or c:/cygwin directly
after stopping processes ?
