The Windows installer in the 6.4 Universal Forwarder installed the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Windows 4.8.0.
Was that feature removed in the 6.5 Universal Forwarder?

That option is available if you click "Customise options" while running the installer on windows.

What I have found to be better practice in my opinion is to install nothing besides the universal forwarder and point this to a deployment server, then let the deployment server send over the current SplunkTAwindows.

By using the deployment server you can then remotely update the SplunkTAwindows and update multiple servers to include new log sources or similar (or just a single server if you prefer).
