    @virinder01 I assume you mean

    I've seen that error when a local proxy blocks the file for whatever reason. That file, in particular, is a decompression library we use to unpack downloaded files. When I originally released that to the public I used another program called "upx" to compress it. Turns out that upx compressed files freak out some antivirus programs.

    Looks like that URL got on someone's naughty list. Are you using bitdefender by any chance?

    I had the same issue. I have Kapersky Antivirus. Thanks to this thread I tried turning it off before installing and it worked fine.
