Description:
At the start of installation encountered 
[Internal error 2739] at the start. I worked around as described here http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2007/06/07/3151752.aspx  with the only difference that I needed to re-register 32bit jscript.dll, on my 64 bit box and 64 bit installation. 

Tried to change the root password in the ConfigWizard and got the error "cannot connect, security settings failed, pls check your personal firewall". 
-The popup with this message came in the background (no focus, window is hidden behind the active one). 
-The password for root however *was* changed, as I was able to login with the
client using new password.

How to repeat:
s. above

Noted in 4.1.25, 5.0.51b, 5.0.60, 5.1.25, 6.0.6 changelogs.

On Windows, the installer attempted to use JScript to determine
whether the target data directory already existed. On Windows Vista
x64, this resulted in an error because the installer was attempting
to run the JScript in a 32-bit engine, which wasn't registered on
Vista. The installer no longer uses JScript but instead relies on a
native WiX command.
