As SF now enforces all projects to use a drive-by installer for Windows [1], I strongly recommend you to move the project to another site, e.G. Github.

    2. Classic Shell is already moving away from Sourceforge for other reasons starting with version 4.0 (and 3.9.x betas). Read here: http://www.classicshell.net/faq/#general_oss
