- Subject: debugging setup.exe behaviour.
I'm trying to figure out what is happening as setup.exe doesn't
install software via bash. If I try, fo example:
/cygdrive/c/cygwin/setup.exe -d -D -s
'http://mirrors.xmission.com/cygwin/' -I '/home/user' -P vim
no output is shown and no software is installed at all. setup.log (and
.full) are only changed if I try $PWD/setup.exe -h or --help, as in
. I've tried the debug version  as well (i have tried both
setup-2.573.2.3.exe and setup-2.602.exe, with several parameters -I,
-d, -q options, always the same).
Any ideas? How does setup.exe let the user know of failures?
