Previously the manual use of Windows Installer(check_mk_agent.msi) could lead to strange installation errors. This happens during the cleanup of the ProgramData folder, because some files in this folder may be locked by other running Windows software, Windows Agent's plugins, cmk-update-agent.exe or even by the Windows Agent itself.

Since now then the Windows Installer does not touch ProgramData anymore and prevents such errors.
