For added data, my system admin blocks all known installers, including nullsoft. This sends an alert to IT which gets them to visit my boss and complain. With TBB 2, I could simply unzip it and run TBB.

You can do the same with, for example, torbrowser-install-6.5a2_en-US.exe (by selecting "unzip" in the context menu, if your zip is integrated into OS)
