"nolib" installs have increased to over 3% since Overwolf alpha released

I project manage the World of Warcraft addon Can I Mog It?

I've gotten two tickets recently that led me to check our "nolib" installs and they have been increasing at a silly rate versus previously. "nolib" is not typically used by many users and if it does get installed by someone without meaning to, it can cause errors if they're missing the libraries.

It looks like after the CurseForge alpha released, "nolib" installs started increasing and then when the beta released, they went up even more. (see spreadsheet screenshot)

One of the users (ticket 263) said they had just installed the beta and I asked him to check the right-click settings and it was set to "Install Libraries Separately" which is not a default setting. Most users don't even know that "nolib" exists.

    I just tested this myself by removing my folder and it installed the "nolib" version complete with the Install Settings set to "Install Libraries Separately".

    Previously I only had my Working Version installed.
