No idea if this is possible. If yes, it would be an alternative.Maybe we could add a command line only switch?
I didn't understand the logic of this report. On the one hand it's compared with installers of freeware applications where you can install malware on your system and on the other hand it's suggested to download and install it on the fly -- which is even worse IMO. So, for the bug report I would only check if the redistributable needs to be installed and if yes do it. There are also some links to stackoverflow how to achieve this.I'm personally against being online for an install a requirement, so what's the point?
Done.@mayer, you can assign this issue to me
For developer snapshots 7z archives might be OK but for a release version I prefer a real installer.Maybe we offer a .7z of the release, then anyone can do anything they want, FreeCAD on Win is portable. And offer an installer for the typical Windows user that just wants to double click and be done with it?
