I tried to download the CS, windows users; cs-winlibs 64 bits. I managed to download, unpack and install all Software packages including CrystalSpacelibs-64 and OpenAL, however I was unable to install MSYS support for Cystal Space libraries(x64).

Error: When you double click MSYSsupport-x64.exe, an installation windows pops up and asks where you would like to download the software. It will suggest C:\Program Files (x86)\MSYS\msys\1.0\etc\profile as the installation path. However when you click "Next" you get an error message "The specified 'profile' file does not exist; please check if the path is correct".

It won`t create the installation path if it does not exist and even when you create another path or the same path, you still get the
same error message.

I am running:
OS: Microsoft Windows 8
Processor:     AMD 64-bit
System Type:     64-bit Operating System
Target Application:    MSYS
