This package will download the installer.

The installer has become increasingly tamper-proof. Now it is simply impossible to automate.

Deprecating this package is not making anyone happy. As a compromise, this package will download the installer and put a shortcut on your desktop. Not ideal, but at least this way you can somewhat automate the installation of multiple packages. You won't have to google for the installer. It will be there on your desktop.

Ninja maintainer wanted.

Someone with absolute ninja-skills in AutoIT or AutoHotkey can probably automate the download of the installer, and then automate the execution of the installer.

I am not that ninja.

Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
