Bug: fatal (installation program)

I downloaded and ran BTSync.exe (md5sum 25f28dc590bf4bd651447c03e74cd159).

I elected to install it on a Windoze XP machine, and made the installation directory a directory on a NAS which was seen by the OS as Z:\.

When I was prompted for a directory to "sync," I chose to browse for one, got a list of drives and directories on my computer, and selected a directory, specifically one called Z:\XFER

At this point a window popped up reporting the crash, and offering me to send in a report to the developers, which I hope it did.

At this junction, I shall attempt to reproduce the error, following the same steps.

Yes. The bug happens the same way (screenshot attached), however, this time, the installation program cycles back to the standard installation/I have a secret screen. I can then keep cycling to selecting a directory and crashing.

I'll be happy to try it again when you fix the installation program, or to provide you with additional details to help you find out what went wrong, in case you did not receive a crash report from the installation program (I sent it twice).

By the way, I don't like programs that go scribbling on a drive which I asked them NOT to utilize. I gave you a directory you can play around in; if you want to dump core there, it's fine with me--but I don't want you writing on the system drive.

I find that the program was installed. When I run it and attempt to add a directory, the same crash occurs (I generate a key and select a directory, and a fatal error occurs.

I also find that by accepting the default suggestion, which I don't really want to share, I get the same crash.

So I think for now I shall uninstall and wait for the next release. Obviously, this was sent out a bit untested.
