Because the first attempt failed, I'd do this:

That's weird: 'cygcheck /bin/bash' should confirm that bash.exe does not
depend on the msvc runtime. Yet there have been a few similar reports:"Microsoft+visual+c%2B%2B+runtime+library";
Based on them, I'd suggest that you
 - remove cygwin completely as above, but in step four also remove the
   download directory;
 - set a minimal %PATH% before starting setup.exe to reinstall;
 - run cygcheck -s -v -r as suggested here:

One of the messages found by googling as above suggests Dependency Walker.
