There were a few bugs in the installer that have been fixed:
1) Could only install if Python 2.2 was available.
   Now detects 2.3 - 2.2 - 2.1 and then gives up.
2) Bombed if the permission setting checkbox was checked.
   Typo in the Innosetup code {tmp} was written as {temp}....

These issues are fixed in the version now posted on my website.
But there is now a different issue and I need some help with this:

For some reason it now works well ONLY with Apache! After installing
to IIS, apparently without problems, the result when browsing for
ViewCvs is a permission denied page (error 403).
I can't for the life of me understand what has happened since this
worked fine before and I have not changed anything IIS specific.
At least on my XP-Pro machine with IIS 5.1 I get the 403 error.
My latest working installations with the old installer was on W2000
Server machines and the install was done about mid-fall 2003.
After this I have of course applied various MS Security patches to all
of my PC:s. Could this have degraded the permissions such that ViewCvs
can no longer be installed as simply as before?
Don't know the answer as yet.

Anyone is welcome with hints....
