Can't download SourceTree for Windows 1.4


I am having trouble download SourceTree for Windows. When I click on the download link, it redirects me to another page saying:


Virus Download Blocked

Download of the virus has been blocked in accordance with company policy. Please contact your system administrator if you believe this is in error.

File name: SourceTreeSetup_1.4.0.exe"

What do I do? Is this something wrong on my end or Atlassian's end?

could you possibly email to me the .exe file for SourceTree ( I dont know if that'll help but it's worth a try

Your company's network has restricted the file. If SourceTree is something you (and your colleagues) need to do their job, you should contact your IT department to correct the problem. It will likely block SourceTree updates as well, and may prevent you from downloading the file through email either (unless you have your computer at home with you for the weekend).

Thank you both for the responses! It worked when Rene sent me an e-mail of the .exe file. So problem solved! And Seth, that makes sense. My other alternative was to download the .exe file somewhere else, but since I was able to successfully download it through e-mail then I don't have to anymore.

Thanks again!
