  • Hi. Since you're learning English, I will tell you this with some confidence that you won't resent it. Most people would take offense at my pedantry.

    "Setup" is not a verb. It is a noun. The verb, properly, is "set up".

    A similar mistake that many people make is to run together "every day" and "any time".
    "I go to the gym every day" but "Check out our everyday low prices".
    I'm sure there are many other examples of this class of error.

    In general, first try writing words separately. Then see if that looks wrong.
