The CAB download link points to the .exe. For there won't be a dead link, for old forum threads etc..

[*]The "Development Builds" now use the (NSIS Setup).
|- The "SFTPDev.exe" detects the MSI installation path, and if not found, the default install path will be "C:Program FilesSmartFTP".

It's a self extracting executable. Once clicked upon, it auto detects the MSI path where you installed SmartFTP to. If that path is not found,
due to not installing SmartFTP using the MSI setup, or any other circumstances, it then defaults to "C:Program FilesSmartFTP". You have
full control of where the files will be extracted to. The benefit is great, because there is no need for any third party utility to extract the
archive. It makes it very easy for the new and advanced users. No extra intervention is needed at all, just a point and click process.

hmhmhm normally the server could tell the client what the original filename is. i will check that out and tell you more about it later :)

anyway. i really hate it to install it again and again.
would it be possible to offer the cab file again or a zip file?

No, there won't be any more .cab or .zip file format.

I don't see what the big deal is though, it's just a self extracter, which extracts the files to a folder.
Which you have full control of specifying. There are no registry entries, or Install/Uninstall files being made.

Is it clear to you now?

It was quicker and easier to check file dates.

3rd party extraction programs are required almost everywhere else anyways, so it's not really that much of a 'hassle'.

Whats the purpose of file dates?

I can set the "date/time" into the window title of the installer if you want to.

If you guys weren't aware of, the following page,
displays the time and date, for SmartFTP release files.

http://www.smartftp.com/get/

This is what I use for the developer build change log ;)

That would be nice. BTW: Your link to the developer build is dead because your're using http://www.smartftp.com/get/SFTPDaily.exe. I guess this should be either SFTPDev.exe or SFTPDaily.cab.
