Help for users of the Chrome/Edge browsers “the file cannot be downloaded safely”. Downloads are often initially blocked in the Microsoft Edge or Chrome browsers. A typical message is that the file cannot be downloaded safely.

Procedure for the “Edge” browser: In the case of a blocked download, click on the three dots next to the entry in the download list and then select “Keep”. You will be warned again in the next information window. Click on “Show more” and then on “Keep anyway”. The download is then approved. After this release, it is possible that you will have aerofly installation data on your PC immediately, as some browsers have already carried out the download in the background and only block access to the file. The release must be granted for all *.bin files and finally also for the setup.exe.

Procedure for the “Chrome” browser: First right-click the link to the installer in the e-mail and then select “Save link as…”. Then select the storage location (e.g. the Downloads folder). If you see a message in the bottom left-hand corner of the Chrome browser that the installer “cannot be downloaded safely”, click on the small arrow next to the message and select “Keep”. The installer should then be saved in the download folder. There you can right-click to run the installer “as administrator”, i.e. to start it.
