I got a Windows Defender warning with the just-released installer,
similar to Issue #990. In order to install you have to run as
administrator and then allow it.
I expect it's because it's a random .exe from the internet with lots of
compressed, executable code, which makes system-wide changes. These are
the times in which we live.
