Well guys, I dont know why you are so concerned about DC instalation.
DC is just files inside de directory Mods/DesertCombat and nothing more.

There is no DLL, registry entry or whatever, the installer just copy 
some files to the directory. Mods/DesertCombat.

The gray rettangle is in the same place where some messages appears:
"Warning! Connection problem!"

And others, and the circuntances that  make it apear i don´t know.
For me it happens, but is not that often!
