      Description

      This user in the Q&A cannot download our TiStudio installer for Windows from his Appcelerator Network account, as executables are blocked by his company proxy (arguably a common situation with enterprise users in particular)

      Other users who use local security software that quarantines executable files may also encounter unnecessary difficulties.

      To make it consistent with the Linux downloads, would it be possible to archive the Windows installer in a zip? Admittedly, as the exe is probably already compressed to some degree, this may well increase the file size slightly, but at least it would reduce these problems with users not being able to obtain it.
