I installed 64 bit 3.3.4 yesterday with no problem. I reran it today in 
repair mode and again, no problem.

With 64 bit 3.4.0, I get
"There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program 
required for the install to complete could not be run."

No, the generic message does not bother to say *which* program :-(.

34 bit 3.4.0 installed fine. I redownloaded 64bit 3.4.0 and install 
gives the same message.

Can someone verify that this is not some bizarre glitch on my machine?

If it is not, Windows users should download the 32 bit binary for now.

Someone should remove the link to the installer that does not work.

A followup should be posted when it is replaced.
