whoa, how strange, i just tried it and nothing happened :/

Do you have an Antivirus extension on your chrome?

Avast has some really nasty and really annoying extensions that almost block yo from doing anything as simple as direct download

The site where the executable download is hasn't yet been submitted to Microsoft as a safe file.

Once it's submitted and reviewed, the file won't be looked at as unsafe anymore.

Just another example of overzealous protection mechanisms. If you know and trust the site it's usually of no concern to bypass the block.

You can select the arrow where it's dismiss and click in "show miore info" and bettew the words, there a option that's says "keep the file, im know what im dowloading" and you should be able to re-download again.

There's something about the binary that's tripping a lot of red flags in malware scanners. After fighting Chrome to download it, I successfully downloaded it only for Windows Defender to promptly quarantine it. I cannot confirm if the executable is actually tainted or if it's just tripping up false positives, though. It's one of those really generic signatures that don't give a lot of information, and there's a lot of reports of false positives on it.

 

I guess that's just the annoying reality of this world. Bad software gets too good at blending in, so security software has to get overzealous..

Indeed. We actually even have this at work where Chrome would simply stop an attachment from being downloaded purely because its launched as a pop up. Ofcourse this proved to be a bane for medical staff (But the fix is hilariously easy to the point where you will understand why they are medical staff for a reason and not computer users. Seriously, its that bad.)

It's a false positive, Defender also blocks the file. Probably it's related to using the VS XP toolset.
