Install-tastic

After four days pretty much full time, I think I've now got a reasonably robust install package for Qlockwork. Installers always seem to fall under Hofstadter's law: they always take longer than expected, even when you take Hofstadter's law into account. At least we didn't leave it until right at the end of the project, which is a classic blunder (albeit not quite as famous as 'Never get involved in a land war in Asia').

And as far as I can tell, there's no way to install an Outlook COM add-in as a non-admin user (which actually makes the installer easier, since that makes it legitimate to insist on an admin-only install anyway).
