    Patch reviewed and most changes incorporated in latest installer.

    What's the purpose of the setfocus portion? I'm not clear on why this might be required.

    Enhancing UX. To make it convenient to control installer without mouse. I.e. enter-enter-enter-enter for unattended installation with supervisory control. Useful if you need to script automaic installation. For example, with AutoIT.

    In 5.1.1 if focus is set to other option button than currently selected in NSIS window then it is not quite obvious what happens when you hit enter. This could leave user in confused state where she/he will additionally use mouse or try to move focus with tab to reach clear state of windows controls.
