Download doesn't provide zip files all the times and instead provides exe for download

I got this email but most of the time the link provides exe file instead of zip. took several tries . hope this can be corrected unless there is a better explanation.

Thank you for your interest in Teradata Express 13.10 for VMware@ Player.

Due to the disk space requirements for Teradata, we have different configuration sizes available for you to download.  The database features and functionality are the same with different maximum data capacities.  For more installation instructions, information articles and support forum, please visit our developer exchange: http://developer.teradata.com/node/416

The download files are between 2GB and 4GB in size with a minimum of 10 GB of disk space required, so please plan accordingly. Additional space will be needed based upon the amount of data added to the database.

4GB Capacity Download:  http://www.teradata.com/express-download.aspx?xxxxxxx

Downloading instructions:

Internet Explorer 6 has issues with downloading files larger than 2GB. If you use IE version 6, you must upgrade to a newer version of Internet Explorer or use a different browser when downloading this file.

Clicking Download results in an IE OPEN or SAVE dialog box. Click SAVE and then specify a target folder for the Teradata Express Zip file. When the download finishes, double-click this .exe file to unzip the VMWare image contents to a folder destination of your choice. When this completes, use the VMWare Player to load and run this Teradata Express Linux server.  VMware Player is available as a free download from www.vmware.com.
