It might be easiest to use wget or similar to just download everything.

That would make it 'setup.exe' version 2.573.2.2.  See:


As Dave said, 1.5.24.-2 is the current version for the Cygwin package,

download and/or install has no particular relationship to the version
of 'setup.exe' (or any other package for that matter).
