If you don't want the store version, an alternative is the Electron package here: https://kiwix.github.io/kiwix-js-windows/kiwix-js-electron.html - look for the package "Kiwix JS Electron Setup". Direct link to that package is: https://github.com/kiwix/kiwix-js-windows/releases/download/v1.8.5/Kiwix.JS.Electron.Setup.1.8.5-E.exe . I've just checked it, and I don't see any signature issue with that version. Let me know how you get on.
