Hey Christian,

Thanks for all of your hard work, if this is based off of Medsphere's
experimental 2.10.4 installer there are some issues you need to know about.
For instance there is a VBScript somewhere in there (I forget its name) does
not run under Vista when User Account Control is on, even when you click
yes.  This script configures the gdk_pixbuf.loaders and gtk.immodules which
when are not configured properly cause very hard to trace down errors.  Also
there is another issue that I cannot find that affects XP installs as well,
for more info on the issues that I have had with this installer see
http://dialect.openmodeling.net/ and look at some of the closed tickets, or
even the open ones.  Either way though I find that the installer is around
90% successful and I am grateful for that.  I was under the impression that
many of these installer were maintained by Brad at medsphere but I could be
