This means that there is most likely a bug in the version of setup that
you downloaded.  It might be a good idea if you mentioned the OS that this
happens on and posted your setup.log and setup.log.full (which can be
found in either the directory you ran setup from or /var/log, depending on
how far you've gotten).  It would probably make sense to post them

Another thing you might want to do is run the debug snapshot of setup.exe
and report where it crashes (if it does).  This would allow people to at
least match the crashing address to the function name.
