    Default astrum installer(free) tools

    I have all the installs for astrum installer. Astrum kind of closed down a couple years ago, but gave the registered users free usageand then made it a freeware program. I have the installer and all documentation arguably necessary to use it.
    If interested, send a message to me. In most cases, all of it can be sent by email attachment.
    I have not, but will zip all I have together that will include install and docs.

    Even though win 10 was not out when astrum closed due to retirement, win10 is done just like win7. Nothing to change.


    If I get tons of response, I will place the zip on the web and create a download URL.

    It is still the cloosest thing to WISE installer(used by alpha) I have found without the expense.

    Hi Dave, thanks for the offer. I sent you an email a couple days ago to: dave@aldaweb.com. No rush, I thought maybe it went to spam or you're just busy, after all it is summer.

    No Dave haven't received anything, where did you send it? Perhaps a Google Drive folder or DropBox, and then just send the link to whoever wanted it.

    Sent email to rek8199@gmail.com nd it included attachments.

    I am going to package the files and serve them up from one of my websites. That works best of all.


    download at http://aldaweb.com/astrum/astrumpackage.zip

    In case anybody is worried about problems: Astrum is no longer a company and was closed. All has been in Freeware for over a year.

    If I had limited success with it, I would not offer it. I have had great success with it and hope all of you do to.

    Hi Dave,

    I just tried downloading but Chrome is blocking it. This is the explanation:

    Your file download may have been blocked for one of two reasons:

    We think it might be a malicious, unwanted, or uncommon file.
    Malicious: You tried downloading malware.
    Unwanted: You tried downloading a deceptive piece of software. This program, disguised as a helpful download, may actually make unexpected changes to your computer.
    Uncommon: You tried downloading an unfamiliar and potentially dangerous piece of software.
    We've found that the website you tried to download the file from has been known to distribute malware.

    Firefox is ok and McAfee scan found nothing untoward.

    Thanks

    Bob

    There are no malware or viruses included. There are several files included into one zip.
    I never use Chrome for anything except one Joomla addon to modify it since the creator only uses chrome. I only test in windows edge.
    There are several places one can download the freebie, but they mostly include malware and do not include the extras I include in the zip.

    Hello Dave,

    I didn't mean to imply there there was any malware, as I said, Firefox allowed me to download it with no problems. I thought that anyone else trying to download the files using Chrome may like to know that other browsers work fine. Thanks again.

    Good Luck with it. I had talked to the designer about the time he retired and he is the one gave me the extras.

    My AV threat detection reported PUA.INSTALLCORE.GEN as the troublemaker. Here is a link on how to uninstall it HERE

    I have double checked that and it is nowhere on my local or internet systems. Try again? What tool were you using?

    I found I had included inno installer in the package by accident. It must have been the issue. Once removed, Chrome seemed more happy.
    http://aldaweb.com/astrum/astrumpackage.zip
    I included is the original install for astrum, the newest update of aiw2.9.50.exe, May be best to runthem in compatibility xp or win7, astrum.doc. astrumvars.doc. Sorry, I never converted them to pdf
