cygstart is the command for starting Windows applications from the
command line. Most installers will run from Windows Explorer. I'm
curious to know why you don't just double-click on the item.
That plus sign on the end is Cygwin's way of noting the file "setup.exe"
has ACLs -- permissions of a type native to Windows that aren't _quite
suitable for ready display in a terminal. You can look them up on the
Cygwin site. (There's also the command 'getfacl <file>', but IMO its
output is a little abstruse for newbie Cygwin users).
