Yes I am running them on a network share… If I copy the file to my laptop hard drive then I don’t get the warning anymore.  However I still get the secutiy warning if the program is downloaded, even if I download it to the original development pc.


>I'm not a Windows developer, but You have to code sign your executable, probably, just like any normal Windows app you'd release. Does this Stackoverflow link provide any help?



Thank you for the link, that does help explain things and gets me pointed in the right direction.

Are you by chance running it from a shared smb folder or something like that?  I run all my fpc apps on Windows 10, but from a local drive and don't get warnings.

When I run any freepascal program that I compiled on my windows 10 desktop computer on any other PC, I always get a warning:

We could not verify who created this file, are you sure you want to run this file? 


When I search for a way to fix this, I get a bunch of results telling how to bypass the windows protection and let the file run without the warning, but I don’t see any results on how to actually properly take care of this, so the program actually CAN be properly verified and run without the warning and without modifying the windows installation.   


Does anyone know how this is normally achieved, and how to implement this with my freepascal console applications?
