    I have tried repeatedly to install 2.9 64-bit. It fails, and in the log, I see
    these lines:
    going to install 73756 file(s) (2113 package(s))
    problem: C:\MikTeX\miktex/bin/x64\MiKTeX209-core-PS.dll does not exist
    problem: C:\MikTeX\miktex/bin/x64\MiKTeX209-core.dll does not exist
    problem: C:\MikTeX\miktex/bin/x64\MiKTeX209-packagemanager-PS.dll does not
    exist
    problem: C:\MikTeX\miktex/bin/x64\MiKTeX209-packagemanager.dll does not exist

    Note the mixed forward and backward slashes, which I assume are the source of
    the problem. Also note the base of the path: C:\MixTeX\miktex. I selected
    C:\MikTeX, as it will not accept C:. The duplicated folder name is an
    annoyance, but much less so than the failure to install. Also, though it
    reports "operation cancelled", the termination was for the internal error, not
    a user action.

    The failure also happens if I try to install 4389 32 bit. The 3959 build will
    install, however.
