I looked further into this one and figured it out. Line 1 of
/usr/bin/pango-querymodules > /etc/pango/pango.modules
but there was no /etc/pango directory. That was apparently what the
/etc/pango/pango.modules: No such file or directory
was trying to say. I just created that directory and now
installations from setup.exe complete without that pop-up message.
