OK, 'tar' is installed.  Given your description of the problem and your
subsequent problems with reinstalling, I'm guessing that 'setup.exe'
didn't finish doing its work.  Look in '/etc/postinstall' and see
if there are any scripts there that don't end in ".done".  Also, check
'/var/log/setup.log.full' for any messages that would indicate the
problem.  In the worst case, you can try running each of the scripts
in '/etc/postinstall' manually.
