When the installer presents the GPL to the user, it omits the text below "END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS", i.e. http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/gpl-2.0.html#SEC4

This is incorrect behavior as stated here:

http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/gpl-2.0-faq.html#GPLOmitPreamble

Therefore, the installer should show the entire GPL license as shown here: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/gpl-2.0.txt

Please fix this violation in the next version or release an updated version. Thank you.
