clean uninstalled 1.5.18-1 but cannot install 1.5.12-1

Fri Jun 9 21:51:00 GMT 2006

Followed instructions at  and
successfully clean uninstalled cygwin 1.5.18-1.  (The only exception is I
renamed the c:\cygwin directory instead of deleting it.)  I rebooted and
tried to install 1.5.12-1 but the installer says Nothing to install.  It
seems somehow the machine still remembers the previous cygwin install (even
though I cleaned out the registry as described in the FAQ).  What should I
do?  I have WinXP.  Thanks.
