# RE: Is there a way to clone-install Cygwin?

Fair enough. I don't think I've encountered any scripts that modify the system in my use of cygwin, so I didn't think of it. You're correct, "mostly portable" is more accurate.

I wouldn't be so sure, as some package installation scripts do modify the actual system, which is not contained within the Cygwin installation tree.
```But mostly it is indeed portable.

```You can simply copy the installation folder

```

If you think that didn't occur to me, then please read my original message that said:

Thank you for your time, though.
