I have installed the Sketch Up Pro in Windows 10 on my Surface Pro 4 tablet. After applied the fall creators updates, I open the app and it keeps showing up the warning “The app you’re trying to install isn’t a verified app from store”. The dialog box comes with two options of Get apps from Store and Install anyway. I don’t want it to ask if I am sure to run the Program. How can I resolve the problem?
If the program or application is from a non-UWP (Universal Windows Platform) Win32 setup installer, you will get the warning “installing apps only from the Store helps protect your PC and keep it running smoothly”. The feature is designed to warn if you install non-trusted apps from outside the store. The Windows 10 system may be damaged by non-vetted apps downloaded from Internet or received in emails.
Once you are sure it is trusted app or confident that you can manage the risk, try the simple method to disable the feature.
* From your desktop, tap or click on the Windows button at the left side corner, and open the Settings app from the Start menu.
You can also click the “open settings” link on the bottom of warning dialog.
* Tap on Apps category, and select the “Apps & features” tab in the left side.
* Go to its right side pane, under the Installing apps heading, click on the drop-down menu to select “Allow apps from anywhere”.
* Close the Settings app and the warning will be gone away. If you get the “Windows SmartScreen can’t be reached right now” error, open the Windows Defender Security Center, go to App and browser control, and ensure the related settings are set to defaults, including Check apps and files, SmartScreen for Microsoft Edge, and SmartScreen for Windows Store apps.
