Agreed.

If you look at the list of components they have on same page then there is
lot more stuff  I'd like to not even install. Quick scan showed at least
another 3GB (like all the fonts, printer drivers, other languages and
erast-easi support). It should not be too hard to just have an option during
advanced install you check.

Interesting.

I don't have the Vista to try with so only suggestion is to check that it
uncompressed properly (exe in my case is 10,240 bytes) and also try running
it from elevated shell prompt.

You mean like they used to and then realised ** shock horror ** that users would have to insert a CD/DVD if they wanted to install the stuff later. Obviously they couldn't put users through that trauma. Also they would HAVE to supply an OS disk with a PC ARRRGH.
