1.7.9 installation error, cygncursesw-10.dll

I am trying to install Cygwin 1.7.9 onto Windows Server 2008 and
Windows 7 machines that do not have network access. I ran the
setup.exe application from a Windows XP 32 bit virtual machine,
selected "Download only," and selected all packages. I burned these
onto a DVD along with the setup.exe program.
When I run setup.exe on the unnetworked machines, I get the following
error message several times:
"The program can't start because cygncursesw-10.dll is missing from
your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."
In addition, a dialog cautions that several post-install tasks failed
I cannot run the Cygwin (bash) shell because it pops up the
cygncursesw-10.dll error message.
This happens on both a Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard (64 bit) and a
Windows 7 Enterprise machine (64 bit).
Thanks - Russ
