Hi all

First of all I find it odd that this release is named RC1. Shouldn't there
be a Beta first?

I found the following bugs in the Windows installer:

1) Forces installation of MS VC++ 2008 x86 9.0.30729.4148 although MS VC++
2008 x86 9.0.30729.6161 was already installed

This is working fine.

Visual C++ 2008 uses shared side-by-side assemblies that are installed
into the native assembly cache (WinSxS folder on the Windows root).
The manifests of the applications describe their dependencies on
Visual C++ libraries, including version info.

If you don't have the matching version already installed, then the
installer should install the version referenced in the manifests.

If the version is already installed, the VC runtime installer does
nothing. But in this case, it's polite to detect that the version is
already installed and don't launch it, although many application
launch it anyway "just in case".

2) New dictionaries are selected to install (this time Kurdish, Nepali,
Occitan and Romanian). Isn't there a way for it to remember just the ones
previously selected and ignore all new?

We could put the values in the registry and then read them every new

3) Portuguese dictionary isn't included (but the Language Pack is). The
dictionary for Brazilian Portuguese should be renamed to Portuguese (Brasil)
just like e.g. German (Germany)

4) The "Create a start link on desktop" option is always selected although I
unselect it every time. This is the only installer option that isn't saved
from one install to the next.

Same as option 2.
