The linked download has version 2010.07.14.0
The Portable Apps has version 2011.10.29.0

The latest version on the website is 2011.10.29.16

I successfully extracted the installer with Universal Extractor, but that's about as far as I got. The latest version is not portable for the free version. ..But who cares, I've had SIW crash on me too many times for me to take it seriously now days.

to run the normal (free version) installer without loading the OpenCandy dll (the adware portion of the installer used to monetize SIW), use the parm:

so use:
siw-setup.exe /NOCANDY
