Dear Sandro,
the cygwin-1.7 can not install the package as
the Macaulay repository miss the setup-2.ini file.
The workaround is to install from a local directory.

You need to create on your "Local Package Directory"
a directory called

Then copy the file

in it and rename it "setup-2.ini"

then create a subdirectory "Macaulay2"
and copy in it the package

In this way you have created the expected structure.

Now run setup-1.7 and choose "Install from Local Directory".
