Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Discuss Release Apache Flex SDK Installer 3.0 - RC6

As currently written, we can fail before we get the localized strings.
Also, there is very little chance that all of the current locales will get
updated.  Some locales are already missing strings.

I considered replacing the privacy notice with an error message, but it
looks like the code will still call the abort tracker, so I ruled out that
idea.

Right now I'm leaning towards auto-displaying the log.
