Description

Via #3030

1) The file requesters (at least on MacOS) don't tell the user what to select.

2) If the setup doesn't find what it is expecting, it fails silently and displays the requester again instead of letting the user know what wasn't found.

3) The wizard doesn't work with the unpacked gog.com installer for new installation.

It's not made distinctly clear which data sources are "installation media" and which are "existing installations". We could have a drop down menu that includes common sources like Steam, GoG, Retail CDs and regular existing Morrowind installations.

4) when the wizard starts installing the data from installation media there is a lack of feedback to the user.

When selecting the install media it seems like nothing is happening. It took at least a minute before the progress bar started to move, during which time it just looks like it's hung.

I think that this feature request is overly broad and would be easier to complete if it were broken up (at a minimum, points 1, 2, and 3 into their own bugs). Would it be alright to do that?
