After installing and first launch, Avast kicked in, did a quick scan (even though I already scanned the installer file, resulting in 'no threat found') and sent the file to their anti-virus lab automatically.

Perhaps it has an issue with the file not being digitally signed by
a Microsoft-approved signer? :)

Honestly, I've no idea, but I do not really care what snake-oil peddlers
