AS : Syndicate worked fine before the previous Redstone update, the trainers for Shadows of Mordor& Ryse both stopped working after this update to build 14316. This has been the only change to my system.
SmartScreen has no effect on the trainers - they had already been "unblocked" when downloaded. I save them to a NAS drive, which has the effect of negating this anyway, and even if I save them to my main drive, this is the first thing I do along with ticking the "run as administrator" box in the file properties.
I have never had any issues with defender blocking any of the trainers. As I said, the only change is updating to a Redstone build. Reading in the AS : Syndicate thread, other people are having similar issues.
(ps turning win def off has no effect)
