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.

  • Hi folks,

    We do not enforce you all having to use the DevShare program. This program is totally optional to you. Period.

    If you do not want to participate, you are golden - nothing changes.

    Please let me know if you'd like to discuss. I'm happy to get on the phone or Skype even if that would help.

    Best regards,
    Daniel Hinojosa

    I would also vote for using GitHub. It makes collaboration much easier, has a great wiki, issue tracker and community.

    If you would like a hand migrating the project, I am happy to help.

    1) SF doesn't add any additional installer to 7-Zip.
    2) I suppose GitHub doesn't like to host binaries.
    So I'll use SF.
