Looks VERY good. Nice job.

Some comments:

* The readme.txt has LcdBible information rather than InstallManager.

* Should this be ver 1.5.9?

* What is the status of icudt##.dll ?

* In the "Help About" lower window, there is a sentence that starts 
"Thanx to God for His GREAT MERCY and LOVE:
Should this be "Thanks"?

A request: (may be outside scope of installer, but is related)
The code in SWMgr::findConfig was revised to look for ../library, 
which is a welcome improvement. However, it would also helpful to have 
it check for mods.d in ../The SWORD Project. This would facilitate 
other "family apps" finding modules from upgrades to existing 
installations. As it is now, the best "hold your nose" alternative is 
to install in the same directory as BibleCS sword.exe

Scenario of upgrade to existing installation:
C:\Program Files\CrossWire\The SWORD Project\sword.exe
C:\Program Files\CrossWire\The SWORD Project\mod.s
C:\Program Files\CrossWire\The SWORD Project\modules

A "family app" in its own subdirectory could have a tough time finding 
mods.d and modules if SWORD_PATH isn't set (but will the installer 
always set SWORD_PATH?)
C:\Program Files\CrossWire\LcdBible\LcdBible.exe
