Windows 8.1 smartscreen did not let me install the KeePass version 2.24.
Smartscreen shouldn't stop you installing software. Are you saying it prevents you downloading KeePass? What messages do you get?
when i run the KeePass-2.24-Setup.exe i get this message: "Windows SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from running. Running this app might put your PC at risk" and clicking on the "more info"-button: "publisher name is unknown"
Try turning the filter down to "Warn" mode by following this tutorial.
Windows 8 - the most stupid invention in computer science since laptop with glossy screen :)
Try to right-click at exe file, go to Prpoerties and then you have button "Unlock".
The "unlock" button has been around since Windows XP. It's added by the browser on download.
Yes, but in XP/7 you can easily bypass warning dialog and simply click on continue. In 8 it's not so simple.
