What an Installer Should Do

Certainly many of you have seen my rants about installers that don’t do a very good job of installing. I must extend props to the EA/Dice guys for doing the right thing with the Battlefield 2142 installer when it encounters a version of Windows it doesn’t know about:

Battlefield 2142 Installer

It warns you and then lets you continue. Which means that, unlike other retarded installers, I can actually play Battlefield 2142 on my Windows Server 2003 desktop machine.

Thank you, whoever built this installer.
