Lengthy waiting period for setup.exe to launch

Resolved this issue.

Space in "Program Files" caused the issue. Once the string was escaped - the script executed normally.

<INSTALLLOCATION VALUE="E:\'Program Files'\"/>


Is it normal that the "Waiting for SharePoint Products and Technologies Wizard to launch............" message remains executing indefinetly?

Went through the hotfixes and pre-requisites successfully, rebooted and restarted the Launch.bat - still no success.
