It gives me a dialog 'Enter username and password for "Authentication "'.
What username and password should I use?

I personally recommend

http://www.python.org/2.4/msi.html

to learn about automatic installation.

which might be great if you know how things work, but is bloody confusing
if you don't. most importantly, how do you set properties? a couple of larger
examples wouldn't hurt (which was Brad's point, I think).

How do you know they are called properties?-) I would have thought that
"Additional parameters can be passed at the end of this command line" is
precise enough, but perhaps readers ignore it, so I have added an
example explaining how to do that.
a couple of larger examples wouldn't hurt


Except that I don't know how to do that. Which examples, and where to
add them? And how make them larger?

Martin

not when you call them "properties " in the rest of the document:

"The property TARGETDIR ...", "A number of properties", etc.

(and KEY=VALUE isn't exactly standard command-line syntax, even under
Windows).
