setup.exe ignores unrecognized command-line arguments silently




Problem: setup.exe ignores unrecognized command-line arguments silently.

For example: the command line "setup.exe -P p7zip curl" installs p7zip but not curl.

Suggestion: Make it print a warning when it encounters an unrecognized command-line argument. So: "setup.exe -P p7zip curl" should print a warning: "warning: ignoring unrecognized command-line argument: curl"

Thanks,
Bart
