I am desperately needing Bitcoin Core 0.15.1 with addrindex binaries for Windows.
Is it anywhere available for download?

I have found this:
https://github.com/btcdrak/bitcoin/releases

But it only supports 0.13 which is way too old  Embarrassed

And I found this
https://github.com/unsystemizer/bitcoin-core-addrindex

But there are no binaries, and I'm not a c++ programmer.
I need  to reliably query transactions by external address that are not in the Bitcoin Core wallet(s) - to get balances for addresses.

I can query my 0.15.1 full node, for TXs by adding txindex=1 but the addrindex feature is missing (I wonder why such important feature is missing?)

I really don't want to use an old 0.13 version and don't want to depend on external API.

Please advice and I will be forever grateful.

Based on the following from gmaxwell it sounds like you'll need to create your own software if you want something reliable.

Apparently the addrindex feature was unreliable.

Also, what about the incorrect results you saw? What did you see and was it from this version: bitcoin-0.13.2-addrindex?
Querying it on an address which had funds returned no results.  The addrindex code there was written by Pieter as a quick lark, before he realized it was a bad idea and abandoned it.  Other people picked it up and patched it forward but made no effort to improve it or investigate the issues I encountered with it.

Generally it's my expectation that anyone who uses something like addrindex is eventually going to be forced to us a centralized service provider like blockchain.info once the resource costs of an unpruned address indexed full node is beyond what they can support.
