I tried the installer in a VM and I had forgot that networking was disabled. The installer failed because it couldn't connect to the internet. When it failed I was given an option to quit and when I did it said:
Can not find script file "c:\mingw\libexec\mingw-get\shlink.js"

    Indeed it does, (possibly twice); thanks for the report.

    There seem to be two issues for, for investigation and resolution:--

    1. The request for shortcut creation should have been handled, before the offer of Hobson's choice to quit, (or it should be delegated to the DLL hosted post-install phase, which doesn't run after the quit choice).
    2. Handling that request should not have resulted in a call out to the windows script host, when neither the shell link creation script, nor the executable to which it was to create the link, had been successfully downloaded, (never mind installed).
