I guess that's true.

But in that situation, you expect runtime errors. In this case, the 
application doesn't just install, it also starts and stays running for 
as long as I care to let it. It just doesn't do anything useful. Not as 
far as I can tell, anyway. I guess part of the question was if I'm 
missing something. Like, perhaps it doesn't open any windows by default, 
but there's some obscure way to make them come up...
