    The installer simply performs the exact steps that I've outlined within the first comment of the article. Other than sourcing all of the required Essentials files from a new/clean Windows Server 2016 install (which I've clearly listed out within the article), it should be super simple for anyone to install WSEE on Windows Server 2019, and so there should be no real need for an installer to be created/used. Just manually perform the 8 simple steps that I've listed and you're all done. Easy peasy!

    No need other then time and numerous people having issues.
    Take Paypal for a couple bucks and put the 20 meg file on a filelocker site.
    I have no need for your products. However the time savings would be great.

    Thanks for your comments, but I think that I've already done way more than my fair share of the work on this one for the community. If folks don't have any need for my products (which is fine), then they can simply source the Essentials files for themselves and just perform the install manually (which should be super easy for anyone who is adept enough to administer a SOHO server and can follow my step-by-step instructions). Besides that, when you source the files for yourself, you can then be 100% certain that no one has infected your server with a nasty virus, keylogger, ransomware, etc. There's over 1,000 files involved with installing WSEE on Windows Server 2019, and so there's lots of nooks and crannies for some unruly soul to hide their nasties in. Personally, I wouldn't want to run any installer on my server without being able to verify that it came from a very trustworthy source (let alone some installer file downloaded from a random file sharing site), but then again that's just me.
