The last entry in the Windows Event log before the reboot is a message
related to the installation of the 32-bit CRT library. This matches
what I have already guessed. The message reads:

Product: MSI to redistribute MS VS2005 CRT libraries -- Error
1719. The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This
can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed.
Contact your support personnel for assistance.

(I especially like the last sentence. LOL.)

Is this the reason for the "hard" reboot? I assume that the Firebird
installer calls the MSI in a "silent" mode so this can not ask back if
it wants to reboot and "just does it". Can this be the reason?

Is this the right forum to discuss installer related questions?
