Can't click on Checkbox Gadgets in Installer?

I can't click on checkboxes in any installer. Radio buttons, regular buttons: no problem. I don't know if this is a UAE thing or something weird with my OS?

I've tried downloading / installing the installer a few different times, so I don't think it's that the installer is corrupted somehow. Also, it definitely affects every installer script I've run in past 6 months. I often just open the script in a text editor and manually move the files around. Obviously, this is a pretty painful workaround.

I don't think I have ever had this in my real Amigas, but all are currently in boxes or disassembled.

FS-UAE (launcher) 3.0.5
kind of amiga emulated: doesn't seem to matter
OS: 3.1, 3.1.4
Installer version: 43.3
Installer scripts affected: as far as I can tell, anything that has checkboxes
RTG/OCS: affects both
MUI: not installed

That's an obsolete version of the Installer so it would not surprise me if it had bugs.

Can't you select any buttons or is the button just invisible (grey background/foreground)? I have the same here on my system but that is caused by custom colour settings if I remember right. I swapped pen 0 and 1 and did some VisualPrefs hacking. I.e. I can click on the button but I don't know if it is enabled or disabled.

ah! That was it, thanks!

The checkmarks were there all along, but were rendering in same color as the background.
