The TS side I know about, believe me - and that's how I did the install
(actually I used 'change user /install', but same difference). ;)

I'm glad you mentioned that, though, because I was going to try to do
setup again WITHOUT going into install mode, and that obviously doesn't
work either.

I think we're seeing issues with some of the environment details expected
to be propagated to all users on a normal Windows system, but which don't
on TS in app mode due to the the different session spawning and management
