SimShaker - Wings v.2.2 available for download as stable version

Hi guys,
this version features a more convenient conventional installer instead of Microsoft ClickOnce deployment technology. You can download the new version following by this link.
You may want to uninstall ClickOnce-deployed version 1.38 to avoid a confusion between two instances of SimShaker - Wings application, since the previous version will not be replaced automatically this time. You can uninstall it manually before (or after) installation of the new version.

Happy flying!
