Applies To

  • Clicker 6 for Windows

Symptoms

When you try to launch Clicker 6, you receive this error message:

This app has been blocked for your protection

Solution

This can happen if you're signed into a Windows User Account that doesn't have the necessary privileges to activate Clicker 6.

To solve this problem:

  1. Right-click the Clicker 6 shortcut and choose Run as administrator.
  2. A Windows security prompt will appear, asking you for confirmation.
    You may need to enter the username and password of an Administrator account.
  3. Clicker 6 will launch and ask to be activated. Follow the on-screen instructions to do so.

The next time you launch Clicker 6, it should open normally without any further error messages.

If this problem is happening on multiple computers, we recommend activating them all simultaneously via command line.
