The Unknown Publisher message should still allow you to open/run the .exe, can you port a screenshot of the message (using snip tool+imgur or something)? Maybe an antivirus is interfering?

Anti-virus or the browser itself. I've noticed that at least Chrome has become very protective. The bypass button can be challenging to find but it is there.

Also, you should be able to run the installer in the folder where it's saved instead of trying to run it in the browser.

I've got an older system by today's standards that still runs the game well by my standards.

You should not be getting the "unknown publisher" error.  All our executable downloads are signed.

Something is either interfering with the game (anti-xxxx or some type of security program) or your browser got hijacked and downloaded something else instead of the game.
