The windows version of the msi installer for MonoDevelop starts installing and then repeatedly shows an "unexpected error" dialog. According to the dialog, the error code is 2908.

This same error happened with the gtk# msi installer, until I downloaded it from the gtk site.

Should be fixed in more recent versions.
