In we list the pages, create instances, and add to the propery
sheet. So there is one list.
The second place is that each page knows what page follows, and will
alter this on occasion.

This isn't a reflection on your framework per se, the old code was
really intertwined, and what you've done is a serious improvement.

Yep. I'd like to remove that 'unless' :}.

Can't ask for more than that :].

Heh, I bloody hope they do. It's the standard NT service control
interface I'm using. 'most' users have access to start and stop
services, outside of certain locked down IT departments. And Services
have DACL's, so ...

Anyway, I *ask* the user about disabling it, hopefully that will stop
some enthusiastic but misguided mcaffee person from considering
setup.exe a virus!

BTW: anyone here who:
*) Is a 'supported' mcaffee user
*) can reproduce the Blue Screen (hint: I think large internet downloads
with connection set to 'ms ie5 settings' followed by the install process
is the trigger)
*) Is willing to submit a fault to mcaffee and ride herd till it gets
