don't hold your breath :) But I concur, implementing the RPC APIs,
including the DCOM specific ones, will fix it eventually. Now that I
have an actual working test, I can continue work on the actual
implementation side. But first I want to do some more cabextract
stuff, since it appears that it's not 100% working yet.

Well, it's not hard to imagine why an installer might need some
interprocess communicaiton. And since RPC is available for basically
every MS OS out there, and even non-MS platforms, it's easy to see how
they came to the decision to use it.
