    Cygwin silent install?

    anyone got one working ?

    I followed this wiki

    Sarah Thompson - Unattended installation of the entire Cygwin build

    For some reaons when i run the setup.exe -q --local-install --root c:\where\you\want\to\put\cygwin -l c:\path\to\installer\directory

    pointing it to the right folders obviously, it gives me an error on line 1 for setup.ini c:\cygwininstall\cygwin/setup.ini line 1: syntax error, unexpected STRING, expecting $end....

    any clue?
