My staff has researched this, and this is what we use:
setup (noun) Begin the system setup.
setup (adj) Begin the setup process.
set up (verb) Begin to set up your system.
We do not use set-up.

I have noticed that setup/set-up (used as a noun) is often spelled in these
two different ways.
My colleagues and I are unsure as to which is the correct spelling and thus
which one to use in our documentation.
