I love the new setup experience, always felt strange running the explorer MSIs separately (especially since they don’t support being standalone installed without VBR/VBR Console/VBM365 anyway).

 

Thanks for linking to my post as well!

The new setup is great. Going to be starting a blog series soon on it hopefully next week.
