First of all, thank you for answering me.
- For packages format, I'm not an expert, so I've changed in tar.bz2, because in the x86 version of program, they were in tar.bz2.
But if you mean that is not a cause, I will modify this.
- I've modified setup in order to find packages in tar.bz2 instead of tar.xz.
- There were errors for each packages, a pop-up came each time with the following message : "Can't open (null) for readind : no such file"
- I really think that this command work, but I don't know where can be the error, so I'm searching everywhere.
$INSTDIR doesn't include a network drive letter : " InstallDir "C:\D3IPARAM\setup_cygwin" "
I will try again, without changed format. I really have to download first, then install, because it will be deployed.
var/log/setup.log, in my two last try :

And I can try without "-C base".
That's my new try :
- I've downloaded
- Next, I've copied my fresh repository in $INSTDIR
- I've recompiled NSIS to create my new setup.exe
- On my target computer, I've executed setup.exe : files have been copied, but no packages installed
New setup.log :

A final information : I've made it with x86 setup on x64 target machine. Is it a problem ? I don't think so, but I still wonder.
Thank you by advance.
