@Rainer: this installer is not comparable with 3.4.x or 3.4.x because version
3.5.0 was the first have an MSI installer only (no exe, no extraction, etc)

Why does Kendy's installer pop an error message warning about this and the RC
installer doesn't?

Is it false? And how do you edit the bootstrap.ini to change the Data folder

I *was* creating the administrative install in a user-writable folder. The fact
that it had an error only showed the problem. That is not the issue.

The bug is that the installer doesn't provide an error message in a situation
where it should (and where another installer does). Anyway I can't test this
bug any further so if you want to dismiss it as NOTABUG, it's fine with me.
