Having gone through the pain of Installing Docker for Windows and then installing the InterSystems IRIS for HEALTH 2019.3 image and having got hold of a copy of the 2019.3 Studio I was please when I saw this announcement and excitedly went looking for my 2019.3......exe only to find out there is none and a small note at the end off the announcement to say that 2019.3 InterSystems IRIS and InterSystems IRIS for Heath will only be released in CD form.
