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.
