thank you, this is solved now. It took me _hours_ of debugging.
I found a copy of cygwin1.dll in an other directory.
Would it take long to add a check at the beginning of setup.exe, that looks for orphaned copies of cygwin1.dll?
And if so, ask the user if setup.exe should be aborted or continued on user's risk.
setup.exe runs approx. 3 hours plus 4 hours of debugging.
-> Such a check can save 1 day.
