So, I tried to install a new software product, that required MS Access Database to do its thing. This is Solidworks Electrical 2013.
Well, if you have Office 2007 installed, the installer will fuck out and die and its difficult to fix this without knowing the exact cause.
So for the sake of me remembering this, and to filter out the misleading crap on the SOLIDWORKS forums and elsewhere, here is the deal.
This key is the one the Solidworks installer will interrogate, so deleting this one will likely result it in the installer working.

At the office we are looking into using new stuff. The situation was similar when I was at a previous company and had the privilege of working with Laurie Butgereit on these new technologies.

My new standard test of most languages is not merely "Hello, world" but the awesome hedgehog-worthy task of doing a network listener i.e. a fully functional TCP server. As can be seen, its even easier to do this in Go, than in Python, and when you compile this you get a straight, ready-to-run executable. How awesome is that!
