Current SETUP.EXE (126.96.36.199) updating almost everything. Mostly
tetex/texmf stuff is new.
Post-Install script starts and then throws:
> sh.exe instruction at 0x77f8ed61 referenced memory at 0x00000010.
> The memory could not be "written".
> Click [OK] to terminate.
At that point, the script window shows:
> ==================== binaries found by searching $PATH
> tex: /usr/bin/tex
> etex: /usr/bin/etex
> pdftex: /usr/bin/pdftex
> omega: /usr/bin/omega
> mf: /usr/bin/mf
> mpost: /usr/bin/mpost
> tcdialog: /usr/bin/tcdialog
Using ProcessExplorer, I see that there is a tree of SH.EXE invocations
about 5 deep.
After clicking [OK] the process goes to the usual very verbose TeX
initialization steps. I can't tell what, if anything, was compromised.
A zip file of SETUP.LOG.FULL was originally included but the size-limit
