  Right, so this is what caused the postinstall scripts to fail, and explains
why the user's profile files weren't created.

  I wonder if DEP is enabled on this machine?  That can cause those kinds of
massive failures.  Matthijs, can you try disabling DEP in "system
properties->advanced->performance options" (see for info) and then
run setup.exe again, only in "install from local directory" mode; set
everything to reinstall on the package chooser screen and see if it completes
successfully this time?

  Don't see any reason to assume it's anything other than that those files
genuinely didn't exist.  First run on a fresh installation and all that.
