  4. Niice, it worked for me as well.

  5. Thank you so much! I hate microsoft!

    gpedit.msc. does not exist in Windows 10 Home, which wasn’t mentioned. How do I fix this in W10 Home?

    1. Same problem here. “gpedit.msc. does not exist in Windows 10 Home, which wasn’t mentioned.” Searching for “modify group policy” finds nothing because it doesn’t exist on W10 home. W10 has blocked Classic Shell, which I have been using for years. Is there any way to fix this on W10 home?

    Thank you. I was setting up a DOD secure host baseline configuration on my computer and all of the sudden, I got this message when I tried to run some apps. This fixed it.

    Hello Prajwal,
    Thank you for your post, would there be any reason why only 1 application is experiencing this UAC blocking? Mine starts happening when I revert back to the previous version of the app, after developer release a faulty update.

    Thank you very much. finally resolved. I am Indonesian. Once again, thank you.

  20. Thank You!!!
    Excellent!!!

  21. I can’t thank you enough, my stomach was churning already with this win10 bullshit. Thank you!!!

  22. This worked for Alienware AlienFX Editor. Previous solution was to open the exe from a command prompt, so it’s not like it was “secure” in the first place. Just annoying. Thank you.

  23. Wow!!! My MATLAB application has now been installed.

    Thank you.

  24. Windows 10 just upgraded to version 1909 and it blocked ClassicShell. That’s criminal.
    Thanks!

    Actual fix, not bypassing UAC, but resolving the certificate issue at the root of things.

  29. Thank you, it’s worked

  30. Fantastic. Thank you. Getting this error when trying to open software included with my mobo (Asus Aura), and running as admin every damn time is unacceptable. This nipped it in the bud!

  31. I get this error when trying to open gpedit… so….

  32. Any idea how to address this with Win 10 Home? Same issue, but no gpedit…

      Just search for modify group policy then click on it and do the required steps.

  33. It worked!!! I can run my portable app without issues

    Thank you very much!

    you switched off the UAC! that’s not a solution/fix !!

    1. You’re wrong, it does fix it…

      Thanks for the fix!

      1. It does not. I have tried it too. It won’t.

        1. yup it works, maybe check your key strokes

      AGREE! This isn’t fixing anything. This is IGNORING it, which is NOT SECURE and btw cannot be done in our corporate environment because we intentionally force that policy. Now what do we need? I suspect it’s more related to the Publisher:Unknown and something potentially forcing something to be signed with a cert.
