    Any way to force install of Agnitum Outpost Security Suite Free?


    Windows 10 blocked it from installing. I wanted to use it on windows 10.

    I am getting a little about windows 10. If I want to install something, I should be able to do that.

    If Microsoft has blocked it, its because there is a serious problem with compatibility, and with an anti-virus tool, that can mean corrupted files.

    Then even blocked betas of Agnitum 8 & 9 said in might destroy data. I don't mind if the program is not compatible but Agnitum 8 or 9 should be compatible with windows 10 by now. If Microsoft 10 is going to start blocking programs especially beta, developers and advance users won't like that. That could mean firefox unbranded version or Firefox developer version or Firefox nightly version could not work on windows 10. I haven't tested those yet.

    Lots of programs get blocked right after a new build because of compatibility. MS removes the block when the vendor fixes the compatibility issues.

    You have to understand that each new build of the OS changes things, and software like antivirus, which integrates deeply within the OS can break when those changes happen because they depend on undocumented features to work. So to say it "should be compatible with Windows 10 by now" is not the point. It's not compatible with the newest build.

    They are working on a 10 version but it is not ready yet. No betas at this time.

    I did see mention on twitter a few days back of somebody renaming the exe for a blocked antivirus and it installed, it was twitter so I don't know how true it was but it maybe worth a try.

    Honestly, I wouldn't recommend running antivirus that has not been made to support Windows 10 (and has not been sanctioned either). The antivirus will be expecting to be on a different OS, and may flag and remove anything it does not recognize, even core components needed for the OS to work. Even the big names like Kapersky or Norton have once or twice bricked many of their customer's computers.
