Portable Calibre in ZIP?

Can we please get the option to download the portable installation in .zip again?

I am certain that for some other people than me it was also much more convenient to work with the zip file than with the .exe installation...

thanks,
max

You do something odd that the exe installer can't do for you?

Some firewalls are blocking the download of exe Files. Typically these of companies.

so would it work, to just obfuscate the extension and keep the execute ability?

I'm not going to generate a zip version. I already am generating *six* builds of calibre, and if I succeed at building the 64 bit windows version, then that will be seven.
