SFTP Server - Windows UAC blocking access

We currently making use of the SFTP Solarwinds client on our windows machines and of late we getting the below error when trying to launch the application. I am an administrator but still get this error. Tried to run as administrator as well which doesnt work.

"This app has been blocked for your protection.

An administrator has blocked you from running this app for more information contact your administrator.


Publisher unknown

<Then it also has file path information, I installed to the default path>"

Apparently Solarwinds need to contact MS for MS to validate the application and mark as a trusted App. 

How can I resolve this issue permanently?

  • The app is added to the allow list. A workaround, we need to make changes on the regedit but if you restart the box the issue happens again. I another thread, apparently this is a microsoft issue where MS needs to verify the app or version. Not sure how true that is though
