I'm not trashing my computer by running some shady exe.  Where is the MSI?

 

And why can't I use my email address here?  I tried to register with it, and it says it's already in use.  Yeah... by ME, so why can't I use it?

Hahahahaha, not even a bit surprised by this, MSI is not anywhere near compatible on Surface RT.

That helps one heck of a lot, thanks.  Can't get the light installer to work.  Hopefully this will do the trick with the libraries and such already contained within.

That's because it's not signed for execution on windows rt.  MS keeps it way too locked down to be very useful.

Is it possible to know why the link to the msi installer is linked anywhere on the site? Why is it needed to ask always in the community to get the link?

If you are looking for an .msi release, you can always use this static link:
