    Blocked Publisher doesn't show up in Untrusted Publishers - how can I unblock the publisher?


    The software publisher won't appear in the Untrusted Publisher tab. Since, the steps you've provided didn't work, you unblock the publisher using Command Prompt. Please follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows X, then select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Press Shift + right-click on the program you want to unblock.
    • Click Copy as path, then paste in Command Prompt.
    • Hit Enter.

    Let us know the result.

    Blocked Publisher doesn't show up in Untrusted Publishers - how can I unblock the publisher?

    I've already seen the following Post:

    Hi samuel,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience that you are experiencing. I will definitely assist you.

    To unblock a software publisher try the below steps:

    • Open Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

    • Go to the Content tab, Look under the Certificates section.

    • Click on Publishers button.

    • Select the Untrusted Publishers tab.
      • Select the Publisher you wish to unblock and click the Remove button.
    This post does not solve my problem with a Blocked publisher, because When I check the "Untrusted Publisher's tab in Internet Explorer. there are no entries to remove.

    Any other way to resolve this?
