I'm not sure what exactly you mean. If you mean that you can't get beyond the
installer successfuly (i.e. no installation proceeds), then it probably isn't
that important which platforms it can compile for anyway. <g> If FPC gets
installed at all (even if you just unpack base*.zip), the help pages which I
meant are displayed by fpc.exe (or ppc*.exe) when started without any
parameters (from command line).
