If I directly pass the .exe installer of my referral to a friend ... Register as an installation in Brave Rewards?

If I directly pass the .exe installer of my referral to a friend … Register as an installation in Brave Rewards?

Or for the installation to be registered and verification has to be downloaded directly from your Brave referral link? Because they ask me for the .exe installer directly and I don’t know if by passing it directly they register with Brave and I also receive the reward.

Does anyone know if the installation is registered in Brave by directly passing the .exe installer or does it only work if it is by referral link?

Thank.
