I want to give Obsidian a try (on Windows 10), however something is not right.
I had troubles while installing the app - the installation would hang around this percentage:
However, after killing it, it *seems * Obsidian is installed - but when I click on the .exe, I get this message.
I am the system admin, I have no problems installing other programs (including random exes from Github), so I wonder what can be done here. I tried running it as administrator, checking if it’s blocked by anything, moving it out from AppData folder but still no change.
No further info available on this message box…
Actually, after writing this post, I ran the installation again, and this time… it succeeded, but ended up with the ‘Got Blocked’ warning.
Then, I tried running it as Admin (again, like yesterday) and this time it worked.
Sadly, setting it to ‘Always run as administrator’ does not work, but when I each time right click and ‘Run as admin’, then it works.
For me that’s pretty much resolved, but I’ll leave it here - perhaps the product team would be interested in knowing that some users might have problems at start.
