      > > Windows 2000 ships with a new service called the Windows Installer.
      > >
      > > This installation service consists of:
      > > - an operating system-resident installation service
      > > - a standard format for component management
      > > - management API for applications and tools
      > >
      > > This services allows (amongst other things) all applications to be correctly
      installed for Windows 2000 without damaging either the operating system or other
      applications and allows applications to be rolled back again without corrupting
      the operating system or other applications.
      > >
      > > All application installations onto Windows 2000 should be performed using
      the services of the Windows Installer. As yet I cannot see that any of your
      product installations are Windows 2000 specific. I hope this does not mean that
      when Windows 2000 finally ships next month the Java products available from Sun
      do not integrate properly with Windows 2000 as they should by using the
      Installer Service.
