This is true : I used the exact incantation recommended
in the Pretest documentation : -r --delete --exclude ...

I have a feeling that when Synametrics' Rsync reports an error,
it mentions Cygwin, so it is by no means impossible that it
is indeed a Cygwin version that somehow avoids the need to
install Cygwin per se.  In fact, in looking in the DeltaCopy
directory, I see seven (7) files whose names commence with
"cyg", including "cygwin1.dll".

Incidentally, after a repeat Rsync and CACLS, the Bayer problem
did not re-appear, but at the very end of an otherwise 
apparently successful installation, the installer reports :
