MSI is gone in 2.0 - too bad

Would it be possible to reconsider removing MSI distribution since we do not mind messing with include paths, libs and dlls?

Hi aivanoff,

No, it is unlikely we would consider bringing back the MSI. It is more work for us to maintain multiple Windows binary delivery mechanisms. We also feel that the NuGet package overall gives a better experience for customers.

If you want to manually use the includes, libs, and dlls this is entirely still possible to do on your own. There are two options, the first is to build from source directly using our Visual Studio solution files. The second option is to download the NuGet package and directly extract the binaries our yourself. They contain the exact same binaries that used to get released in our MSI. Hope either of these options work for you.
