Can't install Wing on Windows 10

I just downloaded the wing-101-7.2.0.1.exe installer. When I try to execute the file, a box pops up saying: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path , or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

I have administrative privileges and have not experienced a similar event while trying to run any other executable. I have tried running it as administrator and even tried copying the file to another location. Nothing seems to work.

Does anyone have an idea to get around this issue?

One idea is to use the .zip installer instead from https://wingware.com/downloads/wing10...

That just unpacks and you run wing-101.exe from inside the unpacked directory.

And sorry, I don't have any idea why Windows would do this if you are administrator.
