[tex-live] TL temp folder under windows

I think I got it working yesterday, by just altering Sieps w32client script a bit.

Your two tlmgr lines are interesting, but as far as I can see would not install the 'uninstaller'

I made the assumption that texmf-var and texmf-config would be in 'normal' position and ran the create_uninstaller

Seems to work fine.

I need to do a few tests though.

They should have been removed after successful installation.

They are not necessary (as the name temp says)

I don't think so, besides the desktop integration etc, see above.

certain if this was because they were trying to see more
clearly, or if they simply wanted to leave at this point.
