For me it hangs at the end trying to insta;; /etc/postinstall/post-texmf.sh. I'll try to det more permissive group policies and run setup from a 'run as administrator' command prompt.



I installed Cygwin today under Windows Vista Home Premium with SP1, and found out that the X-windows very unstable. bash shell also behave weirdly. After I executed startx, x-windows did start and a white backgrounded xterm popped up. I would like to have more xterm, so I typed xterm & and the following error message showed up.

10 [main] xterm 2432 child_copy: linked dll data write copy failed, 0x29C000..0x29C040, done 0, windows pid 2984, Win32 error 87
xterm: Error 29, errno 11: Resource temporarily unavailable
Reason: spawn: fork() failed

I'm not an expert on your particular problem. But I would look for a "Trojan" or some sort of "Spyware".
