- Subject: setup.exe annoying behavior
I'm running setup.exe to update my Cygwin installation. I'm also
running a number of Cygwin commands at the same time.
Every time setup.exe tries to update a DLL that's in use, I get a
pop-up message like:
Unable to extract /usr/bin/cygFOO-1.dll -- the file is in use.
Please stop all Cygwin processes and select "Retry", or
select "Continue" to go on anyway (you will need to reboot).
with buttons [Retry] and [Continue].
What I'd like to do is select [Continue] automatically for all
remaining DLLs, so the update will finish without any further
interaction. Instead, I have to manually click the [Continue] button
for each conflicting DLL.
I'm sure this isn't recommended, and I know I'll have to reboot when
the update is done, but if I can do it manually I should be able to
do it automatically.
Can a third button be added that automatically continues the entire
update, or perhaps an option on one of the preceding screens?
