Why?  Youâre using Cygwinâs own installer underneath NSIS, and that program has XZ decompression built in.  Why use a less efficient compression method?

How, exactly?  Can you provide a description of the change, a script you use to make the change, or a diff of the change?

How is that âmultiple errorsâ?  Are you counting each package not installed as a separate error, or are you not telling us all of the symptoms?

I tried much that same command here, and it works.

Here are several things for you to look at:

1. What exactly is the content of $INSTDIR?  If it includes a network drive letter, it wonât work because setup.exe elevates itself to Admin via UAC, and Admin wonât have the same drive letters mapped.  To use a network drive with setup.exe, you generally have to use UNC paths.

2. Have you tried it with -D instead?  If that works, then your local installation cache probably isnât complete.  Pack the downloaded tree up again and try -L against that new tree.

3. What does /var/log/setup.log say?  The file is rarely replaced, so youâll have to scroll down to the last installation at the end of the file.  You might want to move the old one out of the way while debugging, so you only have fresh logs to study.

4. Is â-C baseâ actually required?  Even in unattended installer mode, Base should always be installed.
