The not merging cleanly I can fix when I get a moment. The briefly
displayed command window is trickier. I don't know if it can be hidden.
I certainly see it happen reasonably frequently when I install all sorts
of Windows software. At the moment, I view it as a necessary evil for
being able to support installing to 32-bit JVMs on 64-bit platforms.

If Garrett (the MS open source guy) is at ApacheCon I'll try and pester
him to see if there is a better way (e.g. looking for a magic number in
a .exe or .dll). If anyone has any better ideas please speak up.
