The offenders so far are NordVPN, Boxcryptor and Quicken.


Generally I'm all for naming and shaming offenders, but that's a rather broad brush you're painting these particular developers with.

Most people don't bother rolling up their own installer (do you?) and use a third-party just to take care of the installation process. I'll bet in a lot of cases, handling your particular scenario is out of their control.

Blame the installation software, not the software being installed. In which case, I would agree, if their bread and butter is to anticipate anything and everything that could possible go wrong with an installation (and they should, they should be experts at this), then they've totally dropped the ball.
