    I realize we already have the GUI installer here

    http://msys2.github.io

    However the GUI installer is 69 MB. My script will work with the 44 MB tar
    archive. The script will

    • check whether system is 64-bit or 32-bit
    • install 7-zip if not already installed
    • check for latest version of MSYS2
    • install latest version if not already installed

    Hey Steven, any chance you can use the env. vars:
    ProgramFiles
    ProgramFiles(x86)
    ProgramW6432
    .. instead of /program files

    On my system, I have "E:/ProgFW32" and "E:/ProgF" instead of the usual "C:\Program Files"

    We will be happy to include it in the base files for people who want it.
