    Re procedure Windows uses to install new programs

    Often when I start to install a new program I see "please wait while the program configures Windows installer" or "deleting saved files". Can someone expand on all the steps involved here or refer me to a site that does?

    I did a Google search but it was unsuccessful.
    I've created my own website...a collection of moving, sad and happy and humorous poems which I would like to share with others. They come from stories my dad used to tell me when I was a kid. If you could glance at my site and if you know of others who might enjoy it and perhaps tell them of it, I would be most appreciative. Thank you. The address is www.metrocast.net/~wumply/exper-1.html

    The latter is probably "deleting temporary (setup) files." Try this in the google search box:
    site:microsoft.com program "configures windows installer"

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.
    love, piaqt
