Note that the count only includes unique words and excludes any short, common words (e.g. "a", "me", "the", "and", etc). The purpose of this feature is to limit the impact on the OtsAV RAC by reducing the number of requests that are submitted to it.

Bug fix: Corrected an issue where the installer would sometimes fail. This could occur when the previous version was still running while trying to install the new version. This now works as expected (the installer will shut down the previous version, remove it, then install the new version).
