Install Stickies 10.0c fails on Win10 1909 Empty Install Stickies 10.0c fails on Win10 1909

Hi,

I am a new Stickies user, and I want to install Stickies 10.0c. OS is Win10 Pro 1909. 

I downloaded the installer 'stickies_setup_10_0c.exe' from the Zhorn software website. When I execute it, nothing seems to happen. Don't see anything happening. Don't see it popping up in Task Manager. Also tried starting as administrator, with no luck.

Then I downloaded v. 9.0e which installs fine.
Re-tried installing 10.0c, still fails.

My PC is protected by Kaspersky. I thought that may block the install, but cannot find evidence of that in the logs. (Maybe I missed it...)
My computer is logged in to a domain. Not sure if that has any influence?

How can I help to solve this?

I just updated to version 10.c ,  allowing  after the win10 notification that it was an unsigned exe , it installed with the usual "first use" dialog windows.
Maybe you can scan the install file using the kaspersky program and see if it finds anything .

This is the hash value i have from the exe ( win10 pro File Explorer has it in the rightclick menu ):

SHA256: 312AFFD1F6B09EE7B6401F2688AFD7AE40E0AEF1E2F0140C3E3987D7679F4EE4

Kaspersky manual scan found no threads.
SHA256: 312AFFD1F6B09EE7B6401F2688AFD7AE40E0AEF1E2F0140C3E3987D7679F4EE4

Seems to be the same.

I don't even get to the point where Win10 reports it is an unsigned exe.
I Double-click from explorer. Explorer loses focus for 0.5 second, then gets back the focus. That is all I see.

Update: When I set compatibility options for the installer to run in Win8 compatibility mode, it installs fine!

So my immediate problem is solved. If you want to debug this anyway, please let me know how I can help.
