GeneralHigh Level Design for Installation and Upgrade Application Pin

I need to write a very simple WinForms application, but I often get stuck in over analytical mode with these. I get stuck on Yes, No, Retry loops, and with very little thinking to do about the actions of the application, I start thinking about the 'workflow' of the application. Should I just have a method for each task, and call each one sequentially, after checking that the previous didn't raise an 'abort' flag? Should I implement a simple ITask interface, and a class for each task, then loop through an ordered collection of tasks? Should I use this as a simple introduction to Windows Workflow? The scope of this application and its set of tasks is guaranteed to grow, so my first option of hard coding the tasks is the nastiest, but given the size of the app, maintenance can quite easily be done by just changing the code; the executable is always deployed with the upgrade materials, and not permanently deployed.
