You've gone off-subject but here's a quick answer.  It's setup.exe not
startup.exe.  You can pick up the most current one at the same place you likely
picked up the original, on the Cygwin home page <> .

Look on that page for a link to setup.exe .  Click that link.  That'll pull the
current setup.exe onto your machine.  Put it in the same location you put the
original setup.exe.  Now when you click on the Cygwin Setup icon on your
desktop, assuming you've got that icon, you'll be running the most current
setup.exe.  Piece of cake.
