The Windows installer originally released as v3.11.0 actually contained an incompatible pre-release build (for a previous version). We have therefore removed this file and now provide MegaGlest-Installer-3.11.0.b2_i386_win32.exe which contains the correct release build. Checksums (and signatures) have been added. Apologies.
