Fine, so this solves the probem.

The installer needs to be made more clever.
However, I'd like to switch from InnoSetup to NSIS eventually, so I hesitate
to put work into InnoSetup. Maybe I find the time to switch to NSIS
and add the cygwin test for the next release.
Ideally, I'd like to have a native cross compilation environment and get
rid of cygwin. Fully automized including the packaging, i.e. type "make OpenVAS-Client.exe"
on a Linux mashine :-). But that'll take 2 or 3 extra days which I can not afforf ATM.
