How to get 'Normal' (or higher) version of (x86) vim?

I currently have vim version 8.0.596 from the (x64) package
"vim-8.0.0596-1 - vim: Vi IMproved - enhanced vi editor".

'vi --version' says:

"VIM - Vi IMproved 8.0 (2016 Sep 12, compiled May 12 2017 11:38:40)
 Included patches: 1-596
 Modified by <>
 Compiled by <>
 Small version without GUI.  Features included (+) or not (-):"

From other threads on this list, I understand that vim should at least
be the 'Normal' version or even the 'Huge' version. Or is that only the
case for the x86_64 package? (I have a 64-bit computer/OS (Windows 8.1),
but - at least for the time being - I would like to keep Cygwin at x86.)

I need some options which are in the 'Normal' version, but not in my
current 'Small' version, specifically 'cryptv' and 'comments'

Is there another or earlier package which I can install to get the
'Normal' (or higher) version of vim?

Thanks in advance for any and all responses.
