Whew, long time sitting things out here.

But yes, it installs now.

Unfortunately it doesn't support V3 database format; and in fact the V2 
database I export now from PasswordSafe won't open either, so it's not 
useful.  Dunno what's wrong where, maybe PasswordSafe broke the export 
at some point, but anyway I'm stuck again.
