the cgi thing is the culprit, it might be checking browser version or something, I download zips and exe files all the time

Nah, if you copy it to a browser, it just tries to set some cookie before it starts the download.

Alternately, you can just startup explorer or your browser of choice to download it.

Run('C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE "Http://www.download-free-games.com/cgi-bin/track/go.cgi?RicochetLostWorldsSetup.exe"')

then just confirm the download and you are set.
