RE: Windows Installer - New Layout, any thoughts?

I wish we could get svn hooked up to the Dr. Watson crash reporting as a
third party. Then we wouldn't need to distribute them as long as we
saved a copy of the PDB's for each release. You can load a crash dump
and apply PDB's to it later with Visual Studio. However, I'm not sure
what's involved in getting non-Microsoft programs hooked up to Dr
Watson. I'll have to try to remember to find out when I go back to work
on Wednesday.
