    Description

      There is a lot more cleanup/modernization work that needs to go into installer.dll such as:

      -rewrite functions with Registry class from au2.0
      -reorganization of files/filenames
      -combine functions that have overlapping functionality
      -remove a lot of unnecessary code/arguments
      -remove all of the FX 1.0 functionality that is no longer being used
      -pass around args (such as javahome) instead of repeatedly looking them up in the registry
      -removal of unnecessary functions such as GetVersionInfo
      -removal of MSI tick progress update's, as we no longer display the MSI progress dialog
      -removal of unused browser MSI features, and installer.dll that goes along with it
      -removal of unused resources
      -removal simplify of remaining AU functions (removing UpdateConf* files)
      -removal of unused copyfile.cpp/copyfiles.h files
