Removing Offline Installer Kit is not a good step by Bitdefender. There are a lot of people who do not have a good Internet connection. Another case is for people who format their system very often. Hence, downloading the same package, again and again, makes no sense.
Bitdefender 2017 Offline Installer: Issues
Although it is an offline installer, you need a stable internet. Activation cannot happen without it. Please note that when using an offline Installer, you are using a relatively old setup file. Therefore, the time taken for the first update will be long. A patience test if your internet connection is either slow or keeps disconnecting a lot.
A web installer detects 32 / 64 bit OS automatically while the offline installer does not. Hence you have to download the exact version as your OS is. Confusing? You can use Microsoft OS Version Finder Guide. It will help you to determine the version of OS you are using.
Comparing to the web Installer, the Offline installer is still better. As you can at least install the application without fail. Updating the application is not an issue as it happens automatically as a background task.
