I don't have a support contract either, but Perforce technical support have
helped me before. In your case it looks like you may have found a bug in
the installer, and if you don't raise a support call with them, then they
may never know.

On another note, yes I've had problems with Vista installers before
(although not related to Perforce). My problems were related to the way
that UAC makes mirrors of what it thinks are protected files, to stop them
getting damaged by rouge applications. Kinda like chroot but done in an
obscure Microsoft way.

I'm trusting Perforce with all of my work, and I wouldn't have it any other
