More recent versions of Windows have enhanced security that may show warning messages and/or prevent you from installing and running the software.

Windows Vista, 7

Windows Vista and Windows 7 use User Access Control (UAC) to secure against unknown downloaded files. Please see the FAQ for how to disable or bypass the UAC if you are unable to run Space Update due to these issues.

Windows 8

Before launching the Space Update EXE installer application you may have to remove the security block on the downloaded file.

  1. First right-click on the installer and "View Properties"
  2. Select "Unblock" on the last option, "Security:"
  3. Select Apply
  4. Select OK to close Properties
  5. Launch the Space Update EXE installer application

Bypassing Smartscreen Filter

SmartScreen Filter is a security module that is integrated into Windows 8. Whenever you execute a file that you have downloaded from the Internet, it is first checked by SmartScreen Filter against a database. Files that cannot be identified are blocked automatically, and a warning is displayed instead.

"Windows protected your PC

Windows SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized program from starting. Running this program might put your PC at risk."

A click on OK closes the message and blocks the executable from being started. If you want to start the program, you need to click on More Info. This changes the Windows screen slightly and Microsoft displays publisher and program information, and a "Run Anyway"button. The program will be executed on your system if you click on that button.
