Crashed? The installer should check first whether it is possible to
create c:\texlive, and if not, let the user choose something else.

Another possibility is that Windows needs time to become aware of
the directory that it just created. Sounds crazy, but I have seen it
happen.  Can the user create c:\texlive manually?
