    Great functionality and I have recommended it to many other people. Shame that one has to be so careful during the install process to untick the checkbox so the "extra" package that is bundled in the Windows executable is not installed.

    I am having trouble with the latest version whereby it overwrites existing identical files even though the flag is off. Wrote to the authors - no answer.
