No Official Alternatives
There are no official alternative download sites for FineBuild.
A number of sites have decided to re-distribute FineBuild, but these often advertise old versions of FineBuild and their integrity is unknown.
There are also sites offering to supply a FineBuild Uninstall, but there is no need for such software. All of the messages I have seen that purport to come from FineBuild are bogus and the integrity of the software is unknown.
