The installer looks like it uses a lot of java so maybe some kind of interference there.  In any event, it occurred to me that maybe I could install PV-WAVE on a real Windows box and copy over the resulting installation.  My question then, is that doable, in principle?  I think PV-WAVE installs into just one folder tree.  In general, if I copied over the files/folders, environment variables and registry settings I should be all set, no?

I know there is, but we already have the Windows version (running on OS X) and we're not springing for another copy.  (Long story).
