You are expected to click this button which will close the window, the
cmd window, and everything. As soon as that Finish dialog is shown
everthing is installed and done.

It does not *hang* at generating formats, it only does not issue a
"done". I have added that "done" now.

Hmmm .. that is something I haven't seen before. Siep/Reinhard/whoever
knows Windows a bit, what could be the reason for that.
