Sounds like a problem running postinstall scripts. Check '/etc/postinstall' for any scripts not suffixed by '.done'. If you find any, just rerun 'setup.exe' and "Next" through the pages. This should get 'setup.exe' to rerun any postinstall scripts it has not already. If that doesn't solve it, then look at 'setup.log.full' for hints. And if you need to follow-up, send the log and the requested output described in the problem-reporting link below:
