What is the use of it. Double clicking the installer.bat will start a
gui installer on win32. And the messages will appear anyway in the log
file. So no need to create more distraction.

Furthermore, the infrastructure does not allow easy changing of that,
since we support several installer (text, gui) and they are only an
upper layer.

Anyway, I don't consider this importatn. If you want/can come up with a
patch, great.

Best wishes
