Re: Installation Problems Windows XP SP2

  For the past couple of days I have been trying to install cygwin on
my computer but to no avail. When I try to install using the third
option(installation from local directory), the application crashes
with an exception report. If i try to install using the first
option(install from the internet), I get an error message saying
unable to retrieve setup.ini file from the mirror, or a gcrypt illegal
tag at 60 error. The list archives mention a similar problem where the
setup file seems to have a problem.

Is there a way around this problem, or some other way I can install cygwin?

Did you try IE settings? How do you connect to the Internet?

You could also try version 2.602 from <>
