Internal Microsoft Document loose in the Blogosphere!

Functional Specification for Microsoft© Windows Installer Dialog Box.

Add a dialog box with the following message.

Please wait while Windows Installer configures Microsoft Product x.
Please wait for several minutes while Windows Installer makes your application unusable as it attempts to connect twice while not allowing you to cancel and displaying a complete inability to determine whether it is offline and the installer file is available and sometimes leaving your application in an unusable state afterwards so you can’t do any work until you finally get back to the office and track down whatever drive the correct MSI happens to be on.

Microsoft is sorry that after numerous iterations of this flagship software product we just can’t get this simple thing right.

Where do you want to go today?
