Rather than assume that mount is not providing you with the information,
it would be better to double check that you actually do have noexec
directories.  The mount command does provide appropriate information if
a directory is mounted with the -E option.

No way! You'd like setup.exe to act differently or do something for
you???  What a novel concept.

I don't know why the setup maintainers are so insistent on thwarting the
desires of people who want to run it.  I have my theories, of course...
