I presume you're referring to
where the final (official cygwin, apparently) word is that you think
cygwin users are too stupid to be allowed a choice in 64-bit, that they
have in 32-bit, no matter how locked down and single user their
corporate machine might be.

Greetings, Bill Welch!
Yes, I could try to change the application manifest myself, but that
seems esoteric and I haven't been able to find any GPL tool.
I suggest you use search before posting. This has been discussed already.
The real solution would be a tool that run in postinstall scripts and can
prompt user for privilege elevation, but noone had time or inclination to
write one. Yet.
