Actually, it helps a bit. It shows we have an actual *crash* in
CheckAvailableDLLs. This codei s basically:
LoadLibraryEx on perl58.dll, tcl84.dll and python23.dll. It is supposed
to handle failures on that, and certainly shouldn't crash.
Then it does a GetVersionEx() to cehck if the machine is a domain
controller. The crash could come from here for some reason, but I think
I've exercised all codepaths there befoer.
 
Can yuo check if you have any of the above listed DLLs on your system?
If you do, try renaming them to ".dll.old" or something and run again,
just to see if we get past this point then - that would pinpoint that
DLL as the problem.

		I assume this happens before you are presented with even
the first dialog box?
		Please try running the installer with logging enabled:
		msiexec /l* c:\pginstlog.txt /i
c:\where\ever\postgresql-8.0.0-beta4.msi
		 
		That should produce a logfile that will hopefully point
you in the direction of what's wrong

4 will not install
			
			
			I've been able to install version 8.0.0 beta 4
on two machines but the third one fails. The Windows Installer starts
but after a few seconds the installer widow disappears.
			 
			I'm using Win2K with all current service packs.
			 
			Any ideas on what is wrong or how I can make
this work?
			 
			TIA.
