 +**Windows users:** The current beta is built using a new code signing certificate that has not yet seen enough usage to be trusted by Microsoft. ​ When you run the installer, you will probably be shown a dialog that says "​Windows protected your PC", and the only button says "​Don'​t run"​. ​ But notice there is also a link in the upper left corner, saying "More info"​. ​ Click on **"​More info"​**,​ and you'll see "​Publisher:​ Zerene Systems LLC", and at the bottom of the dialog there'​s a new button "Run anyway"​. ​ Click on **"Run anyway"​** to install the Zerene Stacker beta.  (After enough uses, Microsoft will learn to trust this certificate and not require the workaround. ​ Thank you for your assistance!) ​
