Well, here's an alternative. I just downloaded the file from an alternate mirror, and this time Chrome didn't flag it.

I think chrome flagged it because it wasn't crawled by google at the time and it is now..

That makes sense. I've already installed and run the binary with no problem. Thanks again for your work!

Hello guys, I had the same problem today. I went through three mirrors before the japanese one dled with no warning. Odd thing is that I checked the md5 and sha1 of all the exes and they all matched. For some odd reason the link made a difference. This might not be an installer problem after all. Although, it could be that chrome didn't check file this time for some reason.
