Hello S-Plusers,

There is an installation bug in Release 3 download for WINDOWS
that may affect new computers with more that 2GB free on the
drive containing the TEMP directory (like mine).

If you get a warning that your drive does NOT have enough space,
then do not attempt to install. My guess is that the routine
that measures free space on the drive uses a 'long' instead of
an 'unsigned long'.

In any case, StatSci now knows about this problem and a fix
should be in the works.
