Unit tests are not run for installers, as they require developer build.

As said before we have unit tests as well as automated release tests in
place for 4.8 releasing, but not 5.0 yet. That is why we need to do a lot
of manual testing. We will focus into putting this in place now also for
5.0 so that before final we have good coverage in the automated testing.

Manual testing will still be needed, but simple things are then caught by
the automation.
