I’m seriously considering to discontinue ScrewTurn Wiki Desktop Edition. It takes too much time to maintain the desktop server and most importantly the installer (which has always been a bit clunky, not even supporting in-place upgrades). If you ever worked with Windows Installer and WiX, you know what I mean (plus, consider that the upgrade from v2 to v3 adds a lot of complexity).
As you may remember, last spring I published a survey and it turned out that less than 18% of the respondents used the Desktop Edition at the time. It’s still a big amount of users, and I don’t want to disappoint them, but the problem persists.
There are only two ways to fix this problem: discontinue the Desktop Edition, or make it commercial (paid) so that it justifies the required work. I’m currently more inclined towards the second option.
I don’t have decided yet, so for now the Desktop Edition will continue to exist for v2 only.
