The problem was that the default emulated version of windows was
'Windows 2000'. Changing that to XP, does indeed allow the installer
to complete.

I assume that's a default setting? Perhaps bumping it up from 2000 to
XP would be better for all on balance (I don't know how many things
that would break)? It is possible that it's not the default and I have
an old setting lying about from an older wine installation - this
machine is a couple of years old. I suppose installing wine-unstable
would not update such a setting automatically?

Probably. I've commented there too.
