AlphaC Finally they came to their senses. If they hosted it themselves it would have been better from the start.

tpi2007 OP updated with the news and also with direct links to the standalone versions for both Windows and MacOS. Thanks for bringing it up looniam.

JackCY After annoying everyone and hurting their brand with issuing legal notices to sites to take down a standalone version made from the M$ store download. If it was the plan all along it would have launched same day or sooner than the much harder to do M$ store launch.

looniam Cinebench R20 is now available as a Standalone Download

Looking at things now, it appears that releasing a standalone download for Cinebench R20 was always Maxon's intention, stating in emails from enthusiasts (thanks Skeggz) that a standalone download was coming. As stated above, Windows 7 support for the benchmark was planned, which means that a standalone version of the app was always on the cards.

munternet I am unable to access the store from w10 because all background telemetry is removed from my version. Small price to pay

Majorhi I had no issue utilizing the MS store to download it. It runs fine. I then proceeded to go to the win apps folder, took control over the main cinebench folder and now have a standalone cinebench 20. I then uninstalled it so I no longer have an entry in the start menu.

I don't expect anyone to necessarily agree with my subjective opinion, I just personally find the paranoia over Windows 10 and using the MS Store to be so massively over-the-top around here. I had absolutely no issues whatsoever in simply downloading R20 from the Store and running it, but YMMV. The point I was making in the post he quoted me was just that companies like MS (and Google or Apple) who require signed-in account access to utilize their various OS's and software do not care about your sacred hidden fetish material or your bank account info; they mostly just want to sell stuff to you and tailor the software to you in an individual way. Could hackers conceivably get a hold of that data through a security breach of some kind? Sure, but we are all at risk to any such data breaches every day, regardless of whether you ever sign in to your MS account or not...

Data is valuable, you might think yours isn't, but hackers think it is.
