RE: Setup.exe and window resizing

Yeah, but it's the last one; then we're home free!

Right.  In the Beforetime, there were like a dozen windows you couldn't resize.
You got to admit it's getting better, a little better all the time.

Actually I find it rather *oversized* for all screens except the package
selection page.  But yes, things are a bit crowded on that selection page.

Well, maybe we can get Simon to do it:

"And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out
of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after

Then again, you could do as I do: when faced with such a challenge, learn the
necessary skills, pick up my own cross, and head out to Calvary.

Well, alright, I have to admit, usually it's funner to bitch and I just do that
instead.  But that doesn't make wizard dialogs resizable.

the right mailing list?
