Cygwin x86 end-of-life instructions worked really well

Just to say: the instructions at
work really well. I used the following single command at the Command Prompt:
"setup-x86-2.924.exe --allow-unsupported-windows
-P package1,package2,..,packageN"
(all on one line) to recover completely my original Cygwin32 platform
(being Base + list of required additions).
PS1: If you visit this page there is an intrusive word "option" in the instruction
.. '--allow-unsupported-windows option --site circa_URL' ..
PS2: Can't actually remember where or how I got the required executable
