It seems I only got 64-bit Q-Dir 6.49.5 using the installer. 32-bit Q-Dir still shows 6.49.4 in the title bar. I wonder whether I have missed anything here?

It appears that the publisher's Unicode packages are broken (missing EXE files) and the publisher changed the download URLs which breaks our ability to automatically build the app. I'm working on a Rev 2 that will bundle the ANSI 32-bit version since the Unicode build is broken for now.

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

The publisher's build of Unicode is broken and missing the EXEs so I've posted a Rev 2 using the ANSI version for now. We'll need to update again once the publisher fixes their builds.
