Summary0036988: installer needs a certificate jigger
DescriptionOK, it's time for me to learn Lazarus. I downloaded the installer. Looks like it's coming from SourcForge (safe?) Upon running the installer, Windows stops me and sez
"Windows protected your PC
"Microsoft Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk.
"App: "lazarus-2.0.8-fpc-3.0.4-win64.exe
"Publisher: Unknown publisher"
All this in the brightest red box imaginable.

Since I got this by following the link here on, I think it's probably safe, but why not get a working connectivity to all that's wise and right?

@Woody Brison

I believe the Lazarus development community would thankfully accept the donation in amount 180-500 USD for buying code-signing certificate.

It is not a one time donation, a certificate valid for windows mac and android would cost 500 USD each year

To be valid for code signing a macOS application, the certificate MUST be one provided by Apple through their Developer Program ($US 99 per year). Third party certificates do not work. I have no idea if an Apple certificate can be used for Windows and/or Android.
