Musescore 4 Alpha 2 Installation Message

• Aug 16, 2022 - 00:17

I get this when I go to install the Alpha 2 (Windows 10):

Windows protected your PC
Microsoft Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk.

Musecy SM Ltd.

I don't get that with any other installation program. Is this normal or should I be concerned?


Don't be concerned. I don't know about "normal", but Windows does indeed tend to be overly conservative about such things, and realistically, it's true that this is alpha software not officially registered with Microsoft in the usual ways, so not terribly surprisingly Windows would not recognize it and thus distrust it.
