You can check the mail archives but I think you'll find the answer to 
that question to be "no".

I've heard this report once before.  Was it you?  In any case, it's a 
very uncommon problem.  I don't know what's causing it or a solution.
You may need to try to debug it.

Asked and answered in the mail archives.  You wouldn't have to look back
more than a week to find this issue (asked and answered) at any particular
time (or so it seems).  Short answer?  No, not currently.  Jump in to 
help add the support if you can't wait.

There *are* other ways to install.  But setup.exe is the only one that's
supported by this list.  Sorry.
