Black Baptist,

The version on the FTP.SAC.SK is version 1.1 with outh the Installer. The
version on the PC Mag site is 1.2. It may not be much diffrent from the
version 1.1 but the Installer is important to many people since they may not
know how or where to install the program.

1.1 doesn't need an installer you just double click the .exe no matter where
it's located.

I do understand that you can just double click on it just as you can on many
other programs. The only problem is that since there is no installer to
place this program in the usual place (Program Files) and no entry is
created in Start/Program Files, the average user will have to keep it
someplace where the program can be found again and that becomes a problem
with more than few such programs when they are stored on desktop and/or
other places other than Program Files directory.

Yeap, I put it in C:\Utils with other non installers.
