You aren't supposed to load install.hta into a web browser. You run
it just like any other executable; double-click it in Windows
Explorer, for example.
Additionally, from your email, it appears you tried to install the
library before building it.

That shouldn't be necessary. The rebake step you did will have taken
care of this.

You haven't built MySQL++ yet. You were perhaps expecting that the
library came pre-built? It's just source code.
Open vc2008\*.sln, hit F7, wait for that to build, change to the
Release configuration on the Build menu, hit F7 again. Now
install.hta and the other examples will work.
