This is question about WordNet, not about cygwin. Ask there.

Some random ideas:
1. check with
    "I get the installation program for another, unrelated program"
    "This is a problem with InstallShield... [move] into an empty folder and
try again."

2. Might be this is not necessary for the very basic functionality, but the
website says
  you need gcc, make...
  If you need them, cygwin might be a good way to go.
  Or perhaps at least Tcl/Tk

Once more: Ask at WordNet.
