That is a little different but that is ok. The installer should handle this.

The code is here for MSYS:


Yeah I know this is strange looking stuff so let me explain the process. The 
first failure is 'Function MSYSDetectSilent'. It looks first in 'c:\msys\1.0' 
then it looks in the registry under the key at the top of the file. The same 
happens for the DTK.

Do you have the entries in the registry and if so are in they correct ?

If there is something else please let me know what it is.

As a work around if you create the keys as expected and set the path the 
installer should work.

I think I may look at adding to the installer the ability to select via a 
dialog box thingy the path to MSYS etc when the installer does not find the 
MSYS. This will how-ever not happen for a while.
