- Subject: Cygwin setup not saving "Create icon on Desktop" setting?
I'm running Cygwin Setup 2.712 on a Windows XP SP3 machine.
When I get to the end of setup, I uncheck the "Create icon on Desktop" box.
The next time I run Cygwin Setup, that box is checked again. This
makes it difficult to use my desktop setup icon that has the -M
parameter, because I always have to "clean up" afterward by removing
the Cygwin icon from my desktop and Start folder.
Is this a bug? I noticed that there's no SETUP.INI file in the Cygwin
directory anymore, but there is an etc/setup/setup.rc file instead.
Thanks - Jim
