Why does SuperAntiSpyware Portable keep running an installer?

That's what I want to know. Downloaded 2 different versions and both pop up an installer instead of just running the scanner.

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.

Might be a good idea to address this question to SuperAntiSpyware Forums.

They changed it, it's no longer a portable, but rather a randomly named installer. Quite odd, but I guess they wanted to sell licenses.

SAS Portable not portable? -

But as mentioned in link. Click on the blue link at bottom:

SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner Existing License Holders

If you have already purchased a license to the SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner Technicians Edition click here to download your product.

And then either click the Why does SuperAntiSpyware "Portable" keep running an installer?-imgsasdownloadportablebutton.jpg or right click save target as if you just get a screen full of text.

Worked for me, not sure if this will change, but for now, you get the technicians version. A Guy
