I got a Windows Defender warning with the just-released installer, 
similar to Issue #990[0]. 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.
