UAC blocks the elevation of executable applications that are signed with revoked certificates


New User Account Control (UAC) behavior in Windows 10 disallows elevation of running applications that use revoked certificates to sign binary files.

More Information

In Windows 10, UAC blocks executable binary files that are signed with revoked certificates.

This behavior prevents users from running certain applications. For example, users cannot run applications whose binary files are signed with stolen certificates.  

To run an application, you must have the binaries files signed with valid certificates.
