    I've discovered that creating a compressed tar file of the .run file allows it to be downloaded without being quarantined.

    Hi Barry,

    The error is due to a false positive, We are working with Microsoft to fix it. Could you tell me what you mean with: "its rendering InstallBuilder on linux useless"? 

    Regards,

    If an installer .run file is generated on linux and copied to a windows machine it will be quarantined.

    It is common to download linux distros onto a windows machine when installing in a VM or creating a docker image.
