Thanks for your work on this Ryan. BTW - Grab the current launcher and installer for your next release as they are updated from the one you submitted.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Does anyone has the same problem? My virus scanner reports a trojan virus when scanning this version. Any ideas?

Kind regards,

As always, support info goes in the forums. And please double-check for false positives using an online scanner before reporting (a report from only one antivirus product doesn't mean anything). BitDefender and GData, for instance, currently have messed up definitions... again.
