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.
