Tried with ER4-respin 3 installer from 11-Oct-2013 08:23
Installer doesn't hang on windows (in opposite to RHEL), but there is a "Failed to connect to Management Interface after 5 attempts" message (see screenshot attached) and the installers says "Installation successfully completed" at the end.

This issue is due to the CommandContext API writing a prompt to the user.
This issue is due to the CommandContext blocking on user input:
It has been worked around by enabling SSL security later in the installation process, so the installer doesn't try to connect with the SSL security running (the CommandContext would then block on user input at that point). This should probably be addressed in the CommandContext itself (provide some way to programmatically provide a Temporary SSL acceptance response, or to optionally not block on user input, something along those lines.
This issue is resolved in post-beta builds, whatever ER or designation that may be.
Not a beta blocker.
Verified in ER7.
