I think we should change this installation process in the 
future for windows.

I agree with you.

The Zope 3 application server is stable and ready for procuction.
But the Zope3 windows installer isn't.

We really have to improve the installation process and offer 
also a built in service manager where you can start and stop
the server in the future. Also the missing program group isn't 
nice. You really can get lost and won't find the installation source
after you installed Zope3 for run the mkzopeinstance.
Because most people don't realize that the zope 3 source get installed
to the python location.
