Installation being blocked by "smartscreen" ?

On Windows 10, when you try to install MARC Report, you may get a message saying “Windows protected your PC”.

Click on the “More info” link.

Make sure the App and Publisher that appears match the following:

If they match, then proceed with “Run anyway”.
Refer to the next section if you do not have the option to “Run anyway”.


The screenshot above was made during an update of MARC Report 253.

If updating to version 252, the App name would instead be “mrtup252.exe”, etc.;
if installing the full version (not an update), the app name would be “marcreport2.exe”.

We do not recommend disabling smartscreen.

Smartscreen setup

You may need to adjust the smartscreen setup in order to get the “More info” link to work as outlined above.

On your computer, go to the Settings for Windows Defender

Go to the section called App & Browser control

The setting for “unrecognized apps” should be Warn in order to install MARC Report

Note: You can change this back to a previous setting once MARC Report is installed.
