Downloaded mnemosyne 2.6.1 setup.exe but when I try to run it I get the message "Windows Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognised app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk".

"More Information" throws up only
"Application: mnemosyne-2.6.1-setup.exe
Publisher: Unknown publisher "

How should I react to this ?

If you trust us to install the software, you can click on 'more info', and
then there's an option to install the software anyway.

Cheers,

Peter

Thanks for this. 
As written previously, I had already clicked on 'More info'. The 'More info' told me nothing useful.
My concern was that, because Windows threw up this warning, the file I had downloaded might not be the original Mnemosyne installation file but one which, because it came from SourceForge rather than Mnemosyne, might have been changed on the way. So I ran it through Kaspersky virus check (which declared it to be clean) and Kaspersky Application Adviser (which also declared it clean and said that one user - from the Netherlands - had also given it the OK). I then told Windows Defender to let it go through and have installed the software. 
Cheers
