Did you "Run as" administator when running 'setup.exe'?  Can you run
"cygcheck -s -r -v" and *attach* the output to your reply?  How about
your 'setup.log*' files?

There is no file according to
<> so something
is getting messed up here.  Perhaps removing what you've installed so far
and re-running 'setup.exe' as administrator ("Run as") but just installing
the default packages first would get you going.
