 Apparently yes: as for the original reporter, always "Skipped" appears. So
 the locale is not the issue but the problem that I cannot write in
 "c:\Program Files".

 When installing instead in C:\user\somebody\Documents\GRASS-64-SVN\ it
 works ok. So "c:\Program Files" seems to be protected.

 Suggestion: on Windows7, use a different default path.
