That's right.  No execution and no error.  The installer finishes
(quite quickly!) as if it did everything according to plan.

Anything I can do to help you track down the problem?  It's a Win XP system.

Some of my environment vars that might be relevant:
PROCESSOR_IDENTIFIER=x86 Family 15 Model 4 Stepping 1, GenuineIntel
HOMEPATH=\Documents and Settings\baxter

The default encoding of the machine is set to Japanese (CP931), but
the langauge is English.

That's about all I can think of that might be unusual.
