Hmmm... strange.

I just now tried it with the Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox browsers and all three would display a 403 error (after I cleared my browser's cache). Beats me as to why. Maybe their website doesn't allow direct linking? Not sure.

 

Regardless, I was able to download the file from their download page here:
