Sourceforge.com, where we host our downloads, is a bit flimsy or cumbersome sometimes, to say it nicely. If your download doesn't start, disable any adblockers or script blockers (Adblock, uBock, NoScript…) that might prevent you from consenting to cookies and/or that prevent the countdown at 'Your download will start shortly…' to count downwards. If that doesn't help, click on 'Problems downloading' and simply chose 'direct link', this usually works.
Wow, thanks, I got it!
I'm always amazed when after my bumbling around I get something to work.
All I found was a "block pop-ups" to un-check, and after that, when I hit the direct link to download, it did.
thank you, Chris!
