Sleepyhead 1.1 is throwing up Windows installation errors (security related)

Sleepyhead 1.1 is throwing up Windows installation errors (security related)
Although my antivirus did not complain (ESET NOD32), Windows does not seem to want to install this software. 

This is the error message I receive: 

Windows protected your PC
Windows Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk.

App:
SleepyHead-1.1.0-testing2-20180613-9da8b2a7-win64.exe

[url=https://imgur.com/a/Ky5tDUx]This is an error message I have never seen before. It looks like this.


I will try again with the download and see whether maybe I just got a bad file? I did download it from a different sleep apnea forum, though. It was on their stickied software page.

I just re-downloaded it from this site and got the same error message.

I'm sure the software is good, Windows has an option to "install anyway"  though off the top of my head I do not know exactly how to find it.

Right click the Sleepyhead.exe select properties down near the bottom should be a tick box to unblock the application once unblocked it should run.

I think that warning also has a more information link. If you click that, there is an option to over-ride and install anyway. I had the same error when installing the OSCAR beta the other day.
