Nokia NSeries PC Suite 2.0 install failed caused by long path

I couldn't install the new Nokia NSeries 2.0 PC Suite on my Vista machine.  After a bit of investigation, it turns out that the installer doesn't work if you system path variable is too long.  It doesn't handle the case when the system tells the installer the supplied buffer to store the returned path string isn't big enough.

To work around, shorten my system path variable, and restore to my normal path after install.
