We added more capabilities to the all-in-one installer as well. For example, you can now save and load installation parameters to a file so you can reuse the installation parameters for subsequent updates.

This installer has now gone out of its beta phase and is now the official installation procedure for Dime.Scheduler. Check out the revised setup manual for all the instructions.
