Indeed, I misread the first time.  My apologies.

I admit I never tried.  Not so long ago an installer/updater for a rather niche
software (management of a community kitchen for my hospital, in fact) had a bug
that looked like that.  Completely blank window, although the window controls
remained.  Support's preferred method was "Please blindly click around there,
with any luck you'll find the "Next" button".  It... didn't go well.

Yeah, happened to me once or twice too, but for the life of me I can't remember
what it was.  I was so relieved to _see_ something that I closed the damn thing
just to be rid of it.

Not very professional but hey.
