It happens on all versions of IE.  It is a built-in security feature to prevent web sites from downloading programs to your computer without your permission.  Firefox will only allow you to download but it does bring up the dialog also.

So will keep working in this but for now I think we are going to just add signatures to the files that need to be ran....
