Re: offline installation



Just run setup.exe and select "download from internet", then use the
resulting files and directories to install from - burn it onto a CD,
whatever.

Your mail isn't very clear - if windows isn't connected to the internet how
are you going to download the files in the first place?  I think you meant
to mention you are using another OS for the internet?

I think the simplest answer is just connect windows to the internet - it
doesn't hurt, at least for half an hour or so...

Subject: offline installation


Hi,

I'd like to install Cygwin, but I don't have internet access from
my Windows System. Ok, I'll be honest, I don't *want* to have any
network connection when running windows.
So I'd like to install Cygwin offline. I was looking for information
on which Files I have to download, where to place them, whether to
unpack them or not, and so on. I am familiar with Linux (just in
case this helps).
I would like to run  XFree86 - this might give you an idea of which
packages I'll need.
Can you please help me here?
