Here's what i observed during install of pretest on Win7. I wonder if it
could be related:
- I ran install-tl-advanced.bat as administrator from a local copy of
the pretest repository.
- Installation ran through smoothly. I also saw the post-install
actions. But in the very end I didn't see the usual welcome message.
Instead the tk window froze (no response) and in the parallel running
command window some text lines were flickering rapidly up and down
(looked like a severe crash).
- This didn't stop until I killed it with Ctrl-C.
- The TL installation works fine and seems to be sound, though.
