(Tested on Windows XP SP3 with PortablePython and Web Link Captor 1.01.02.)

Web Link Captor now includes a download to an optional Python addon that will unpack right inside of the program, and not require the installation of any system wide python distribution, or changes to your system.

Web Link Captor now comes with a minimal and local Python2 distribution in its installation subdirectory, so no separate download or installation of python is required.
