OK, it seems that you already have a broken/half installation in your installer database. The important lines in your logfile are:

MSI (c) (A4:F8) [15:58:26:086]: Product registered: entering maintenance mode
MSI (c) (10:D8) [22:06:30:757]: PROPERTY CHANGE: Adding ProductState property. Its value is '5'.

The equivalent line when I run it here reads:

MSI (c) (10:D8) [22:06:30:757]: Product not registered: beginning first-time install
MSI (c) (10:D8) [22:06:30:757]: PROPERTY CHANGE: Adding ProductState property. Its value is '-1'.

I think the best thing to do, is find thw Windows Installer SDK download on the Microsoft site, and from it, you can use msispy to see what is actually in the database (if you care!), and msizap (with the product code {2105A2B2-94B8-4E21-9FF1-FC1D95B56DBC}) to remove all pgAdmin related entries.

Then, just re-run the installer (though I'd grab beta 3 now).

Regards, Dave.
