    This package seems to have a lot of setup package fragility issues. This is complicated by the fact you’re using two different installation technologies, Windows Installer (MSI) and WinPkg. I’m finding it difficult for example to trace through the WinPkg error messages because windows installer cleans up the script files before I’m done looking at them.

    Windows Installer packages are intended to be declaritive rather than procedural, its a different model from scripting.

    I’d suggest HDP for Windows choose one of these technologies, and get rid of the other.
