	Lynn did a great job adding alot of functionality to his latest 
installer.  I would grab that as a starting point:


	My main concerns are that we are adding alot of functionality and stubs 
for future functionality that we haven't thought out completely (CD 
installer issues, InstallMgr launching and finding module set, etc.). 
These things are not needed for an updated release of BibleCS.  I also 
am a firm believer that we should hide as many choices as possible for 
windows users.  I don't mind an [Advanced] button to show extra options, 
but 99.99% of them shouldn't be confused by showing them choices they 
don't understand.

	So, I guess, to finish an installer, I would say either start with what 
I originally checked into SVN at:


	and pull from Lynn's work that meets my original requested additions 
quoted here:

There are a few things missing:
    Launch Readme.txt and wait for close BEFORE launching InstallManager.exe
    Registry keys correct so Windows Module self-installers (website, 
module download, windows) know where to unzip themselves.
    Uninstaller successfully launching "$INSTDIR/InstallManager.exe 
-uninstall" to uninstall all modules

	Or start with Lynn's work and hide all the additional functionality for 

	Thanks for volunteering your time-- and also to Lynn for doing so much 
work up to this point.
