Hi Tobias,

thanks for the proposal. A zip file generates different problems compared to an installer. By the way, does the warning pops up while installation process or while first start of the DataExplorer?

regards, Winfried

Hello Winfried,
Thank you for your incredibly fast answer.
Yes, this is absolutely understandable and OK for me.
I Just wanted to Check that this behavior ist known by the developers, since it is quite strange for Windows Users. Would it be a better way to deploy the Windows Version as ZIP instead of a Setup executable? Since it is a Java application, IT should also work quite fine.

But this is a minor improvement.
Thanks for your time.

I am not known by Microsoft as a developer and does not sign applications as well I do not place applications into app store to sell them. This fact leads to the behaviour applications get blocked while first execution. By selecting "get more information" at the blocking message you may select "allow execution". Afterwards the blocking message disappears and will never show up again.

have a lot of fun, Winfried

BTW: This blocking feature is a known feature of Windows, not only Windows 11.

Windows Defender Blocks the Exekution of the latest DataExplorer Setup 3.7.8
Is this a known Issue? Or is there a work around?

Thank YouTube in advance & best regards
