I could reproduce it, but I doubt I can do anything about it. When it
asked whether I want to report this to MS, I did - recently, I learned
what the magic procedure behind this analysis is, and that there is a
good chance that this report really ends up at the developer of
installer responsible for the code that crashed. I'm pretty certain it
is none of my code which causes the crash (the same rule applies as with
Python: it may raise an exception, bring up an error message, and so on
- but it should never crash).
