Suggest adding link to download instead of update

While updating via SQRL auto-update feature, Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) blocks the update, and quarantines all the files. This happens because sqrl.exe and sqrl-installer.exe (and sqrl-fork.exe) do not yet have a reputation.

Everytime this happens I need to go find the file, download it, and install it from the download file. And I can only do that because I was able to add an exception in SEP for sqrl.exe. Updating via the Auto-Update feature ALWAYS quarantines all the sqrl related executables (even though I have an exception already for sqrl.exe). Then I have to "recover" the sqrl.exe file - and then install it again.

If there was an option on the auto-update notification page, that would allow to download the file instead of installing in place, it would be much easier to install the new versions.

thanks.

This would also solve the issue of needing the link when getting the update notification in the mode of running sqrl.exe without installing it.
