And this is probably the case when user has to accept a license on the website. This is URL for zip archive of yEd-3.9.1: http://www.yworks.com/en/products_download.php?file=yEd-3.9.1.zip It directs to website with license text, check-box for accept and download button. If check-box is not set, following message is shown: "In order to download yEd, it is necessary that you first accept the license terms." If check-box is set, client is redirected to the page with actual link to zip archive. Moreover, I have had email conversation with yWorks representative and he says that installation files need to be obtained manually by the end users from their website. -- Amadeusz Żołnowski
