I bought a stardock subscription more or less a year ago, and i'd rather not use their Impulse client. Is there any way to get installers for the individual applications?
Since they switched to the Impulse client, everything from Stardock comes from it. It replaces the SDCentral which was used before.
All software bought from Stardock must be downloaded using Impulse. There is an exception for one or two games, if I remember (but I can't find the link back), which have a direct download link from their site, under the condition you have an Impulse account already.
Edit: I found back the little article, this is still a "beta" service, so not really advertised. The name of this service is "Impulse Anywhere", and according to the article, it concerns only applications which are protected by "Goo" (their answer to DRM).
I know it applies to games, but I'm not sure about Desktop applications (I don't own any from them). Although, I found this answer in their forums, which seems to indicate it works for their applications, not only games. I can only recommend you to check by yourself, since I cannot myself.
Answer to comment : I'm sorry but I don't fully understand your issue. I never used their subscriptions, so I don't really know how they work. But why is that a problem with trying this "Impulse Anywhere" ?
