Im not sure about it under Linux, but on Windows where Ive done the install
several times. Maybe our installer guy is missing something, but my
understanding is that it's a two stepper for a specific reason - because
there has to be some bridge set up between the Valentina components and
LiveCode, that couldn't be accomplished with the standard installer.

I believe this set up was something different that what we did previously
with Revolution, when you had the "roll back" system and multiple versions
installed.

I've cc'd to Ruslan to have someone check it out. I know he and our
primarily Linux guy are whittling away on this.
