Interesting. The installer is signed by Symantec. You should be able to
verify this by opening the Properties dialog on the installer file itself.
Not sure what more we can do here, do you have any more knowledge?

Fixed. We now pick the drive with the most free space (a Windows Installer
default behaviour), and respect your choice if you choose to pick a
different drive.

I can't upload a new rc unless this vote fails, so this will have to
be a Known Issue for the Windows installer for now. I suspect the PMC
can see their way clear to uploading a new convenience binary installer
for 2.0.0 once the vote passes.

I can't confirm this one, as I do see an entry in Programs and Features.
We also have an Uninstall link that we put in the Programs > Apache CouchDB

We currently don't have a platform-specific way to specify the vm.args file.
If this error bothers you just edit the etc\vm.args file and remove the
line that says "+K true". Besides, who knows - maybe someday Windows Erlang
will support kernel polling! :)
