On two computers, Win 7 and XP, using direct download, I am getting the file without the .exe attached to the name. Using the alternative location, I get the correctly named file.

Thanks for your report. What web browser are you using? Do you have direct Internet connection or are you behind some kind of proxy?

On the Win 7 computer, I am using IE11. On the XP computer I am using IE8.

No proxys etc.


I just tried FF and it works okay.

I am selecting the installation option.

PS. If I append '.exe' to the file downloaded by IE, it is a valid file.

Using IE11 and selecting 'save as' and typing the full file name also works.

I also tested version 440 and it is the same as above.

Sourceforge is okay.

Yes, I was able to download the file using IE11.

Thank you.

You are welcome.

Sorry for the late reply. Lost electricity and internet for 36 hours due to ice storm.
