Cygwin and Snapshots

A few users have asked about installing the latest snapshot on the Windows 
version of the Metasploit Framework. This is easy to do, just follow 
these steps:

1. Download the snapshot tarball

2. Copy it to \Program Files\Metasplot Framework\home

3. Open the Cygwin shell

4. Run the following commands:

$ mv framework old-framework
$ tar -zxpxvf framework-snapshot.tar.gz
$ mv framework-snapshot-dir framework

To restore the old version, just move the directory back after 
deleting/renaming the new version. The batch file links from the Programs 
menu all refer to $HOME/framework as the base directory.
