Windows Defender maybe different to other 3rd party anti-viruses ..... no "Run Anyway" button , no Sand-box, no Isolation Chest.

Help menu and choose "Send sample to Microsoft" (I don't know its correct display text in English) and .... wait some days .... MS will make a new virus database to ignore BAT installer.

Or , in your own risk ....
Stop Windows Defender service by Task Manager only in minutes of downloading and executing BAT installer.

JM - can you post a picture of the warning screen?  Also see if there is a definition update for defender.

This is what Antivirus programs see in BAT Installer:
https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/18370ce26ca370cdffbb1caecbfc768b1d6b2b4f5e979b9fbe9258592eeedb7b/analysis/1515132730/

2 false positives, not too surprising for an NSIS installer file: One time a vietnamese (sic!) antivirus application doesn't recognized the compression algorithms used in the installer, and one time McAfee (sic! that McAfee that lets through 99% of viruses...) thinks it'd be ransomware.
No one thinks there'd be a trojan in that file.
To be sure, I just put the file on our SAS Gameserver, where Windows Defender is running and the Server never saw any bit of BAT before.
Windows Defender says the file is safe. Microsoft Smartscreen says so too.

I tell you what I think: Either the thread starter runs a PC where Windows Defender has not been updated during the past few years, or he's just trying to pull us a leg.

Cheers!

On my Pc, it's possible to go to windows Defender's settings and turn it off, or at least turn off the feature that prevents you from running your program. On my PC I also had to adjust the Trend Micro Anti-virus on it by making the BAT installer an "exception".

Now that both Windows Defender and Trendmicro don't see anything wrong with the BAT installer (talking about the installer for BAT 1.0 here), there's nothing much needed to do but update your Antivirus software, since that's what could cause false alerts if your signatures are outdated.
