Cygwin Installation Problems on Windows Vista

Fri Apr 27 10:05:00 GMT 2007

I've had this problem with my installation as well and solve it by using the
Windows XP Service Pack 2 compatibility mode (selectable in the Properties
window of the Cygwin setup.exe executable).

It installs fine now... hope it works out for you too.
