Hi Martin,

is there a reason why msiexec iterates through what looks like all (?) 
files and directories in/under the destination directory? There is 
massive file I/O going on there (OK, by now you know I didn't de-install 
2.4 before trying ;-)) which explains the 100% CPU usage and the time it 
takes for the Next button to respond.
