    Microsoft is thinking BBS utility programs are automatically unsafe.
    I might need to download on Seamonkey.

    I *think* he distributes them in EXE files that may be compressed. Maybe
    it doesn't like that? I was able to download a bunch of them about a year
    ago with no issues, but I was downloading them on a linux machine using
    either firefox or chromium.

    I downloaded and installed the Sunrise doors on Windows 10, no problem. Just like with any other downloaded-exe file, you have to tell Windows you *really* want to run it by clicking the "info" and then "run anyway" buttons.

    I hate when Windows treats intermediate and expert users like children.
