I don't know why it would cause a problem for the USB install,
perhaps it's the "?" and "=" in the filenames, but our
bin/load_win_installers.sh script's wget needs to either use -O
to name the file or rename it later when grabbing from
sourceforge. (e.g. the commented out gpsbabel example on line 73
of that script)

in the mean time, try grabbing the 'mini' 3.2gb version without
those installers and see if that works.
