Issue Report: Sample Browser ClickOnce Installation is Not Started in IE [Fixed]

Update of Fix

The CodePlex team has fixed the following issue.  The download should work fine for IE now.   In case that the Sample Browser ClickOnce Installation is not automatically started because of adblocker, you will see the following message in the webpage:

"Click here if your browser does not start the download automatically."

And you can click "here" to start the installation manually.

Steps to repro: 1. open in IE 2. Click Downloads 3. Click “ClickOnce Installer” 4. Observe count down (3. 2. 1.) 5. Nothing happens.

    You also have to turn off the tracking protection, with firefox with ad block it also fails.

    Impossible to downlowd from a Microsof site with Microsot software. Microsoft software is a problem, not a solution.

    On my computer it also didn't work with Chrome and Firefox, no Browser worked.

    Sorry for double message. I put another message in Issue Tracker by mistake.

    I accidentally found a way to get the new version of the Framework. Yesterday, I had to search for samples and I launched previous version of Framework. It prompted about downloading new version. I accepted download and it succeeded. I hope it will work for others.
