Problems installing Slate (Windows SmartScreen)

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?

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 ( have the link to download the certificate.

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