I have scanned the disks for any ini I can find and there are none
related to cygwin. I have also tried downloading setup.exe several

Continuing on I get:

... setup.bz2 line 2567: syntax error, unexpected STRING

Help is much appreciated.

You are *not* downloading the latest version of setup.exe which is the version that you'll see in setup.ini - 2.674 .

Perhaps some helpful proxy is caching the setup.exe download.

I think you are right.

I have a way to wget off of a different provider. I will try that and
report back

Confirmed, the browser I was using was caching the file. I simply used a different browser and it brought in 2.6..

Thanks for catching that for me.
