How to avoid the Windows Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting warning RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I have code signed my outlook application setup .exe using the GoDaddy code signing certificate. But when the application is downloaded from the internet, I get this message.

     

    Windows protected your PC
    
    Windows Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk.

    What could be the problem?

    Thanks

  • Have you figured out why your app is blocked by Windows Defender? Mine is blocked too. They should give developers more information about this.
