There is a page pointed to by the CFB installer which offers a failing URL: The URL is also not offered as a hyperlink, which would be very helpful (as we cannot highlight and copy the text within that page).

When we install CFB2018 (even downloaded today, 3/12/2019), the installer includes among its few screens one called, "install type", and it talks about how Builder will revert to the Express edition, if a license key is not offered.

This is basically a repeat of the same problem reported in CFB 2016 as ticket CFB-3772315, reported by Ray V. He saw the same problem in the CFB2016 installer: the URL ( failed, and was also then not offered as a link. 

I have not checked to see if that was ever fixed in CFB 2016's installer. But I can report that sadly the CFB3 url there does "work", in that it redirects to But that page makes no mention of the Express edition.

I have tried to find a good page that you could have that CF2018 express edition help link to redirect to, but I find none. (I had also looked when I did a blog post on the Express edition on the CF Portal: If there is a good URL for that that should redirect to, please share that here even if it may take a long time to get that installer corrected.
