executable file

I was in the process of downloading Spotify on a new computer.  The executable file I kept saving had a _exe extension (in lieu of a .exe) which did not work.  A co-worker came over and got into my Downloads and simply changed the _ to a . and it ran.  Maybe it's my new computer but if it's a problem with a link, Spotify will be irritating potential new customers at an alarming rate, IMO.

Weird, I just tested the link at https://www.spotify.com/us/download/windows/, and the file is SpotifySetup.exe like normal.

I've had anti-virus software change extensions before to make them not executable. Just a thought!

I just jumped on a different computer to try a download and I agree that the link is working just fine.  Not sure what the problem is on the new computer.  Thanks for checking it out.
