[tex-live] Installation bug report - win7

We added the path to Windows, don't remember if I used tlmgr, I tjink I did. Then pdflatex complained about missing formats. So we created the ls-r dbs and generated the formats and everything seems to be working.

We are missing the menu part and I'm guessing we also miss the Uninstaller. But, the student could get on with her work.

I have a virtual win7 that we could run all sorts of tests on. Isn't it possible to move one reg dB from one place to another? Regedit seems to have an import tool.

Then I can test what ever scenario we need.

What did you do?

We'll think about that. However, Windows systems can malfunction in
tons of mysterious ways, even if they are officially healthy.
