I just had him do a TL12 reinstall

on all of his Win 7 systems (not sure if they are all virtualized), 
install-tl.bat crashed with the notorius 'perl is not working error' (or 
what ever the message is)


works fine. But no texlive.profile is created

He also wonders why this install-tl.bat vs. install-tl-advanced.bat on 
windows 7 has not been fixed?

We have seen quite a number of these on Win 7, especially 64-bit, which 
seems to be the default these days.
