Okay,  waiting to respond worked.  I think I understand more about the package 
structure and its member Info structures.  Only the above is still confusing to 
me but I assume it is a redefinition of the Info structure which is used when 
__cplusplus is defined (whatever/whenever that is - but appears to happen in

I also think I understand why no response to my request for insight.  I took it 
that since this was a setup.exe as well as a C++ related question I might get 
some help, but I should have gone to the C++ mailing list/newsgroups for this 
since it is I am sure common C++ knowledge.   

Sorry folks for cluttering the list.
