Problems installing Slate (Windows SmartScreen)

Hi,
I am trying to install Slate but my Windows keeps blocking it:
"Windows SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk."
Any ideas?
Thanks
J

Hi Joanna,

While cleaning our support site, I'm discovering some unanswered tickets, but I thought I remembered answering you. Sorry.

Here's a Microsoft article about Windows SmartScreen:

We offer a Code Signing Certificate that you can install. This will let Windows know who created the installer. Your Purchase Receipt email and your personal dashboard page (https://slate.rocks/marketplace/my-dashboard/) have the link to download the certificate.

Just download and unzip the file. Then, right-click and select "Install" from the menu.
