Problems downloading the .exe ?
Some download time virus checkers (like Avast) sometimes report the .exe above as being infected (Avast says ... DRep).  But they will happily download the .zip file. Then when you check the .exe, that is inside THAT zip file, with their real virus checker, it says - No Threats Found   !      [Sigh] what is a developer of free software supposed to do ?
What all these warnings are trying to tell you is - don't install the software unless you trust where it came from. This is sound advice and unless you personally know me (and all of the early adopters DO know me) then all I can do is to suggest that you google to find out what Bridge Players say about aaBridge.
