My report might be misleading.

When I execute "tor-flashproxy-browser-2.4.6-alpha-2_en-US.exe" a
console window pops up and I can see where the bundle is extracted to.

(I expected a dialog, to which folder I'd like to extract it)

I said "scary console" because on Windows you don't use the console
(well yeah some do, but those don't count ;)) and seeing the console,
without knowing what it actually is or does could lead to confusion.

Beside the console during the extraction process (that's what I talked
about in the report) I see console windows when I execute
"flashproxy-reg-email.exe" or "flashproxy-reg-http.exe"; I don't think
those will be a problem, because they just pop-up and are gone; wont
miss them either. (Was not included in my report, because I hadn't
executed them manually)
