Re: setup installs packages without displaying it

  Or you could untick the box that says "Install these packages to meet

Yes, now after I have started it the second time to fix the broken installation, I see this checkbox for the very first time. Not really a good place for a little check box, a hint in the main display would be nice. And maybe make it optional, that is not checked by default.

  Hmm.  Looking at that file on my install, it's got rwx------ perms.  Were
you running as the same user when you originally installed that?

Hmm, explorer crashes and I lost my mozilla profile and some other ugly errors. Obviously I was no longer logged in as Admin after restarting explorer from the console.
