Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait some time until your EXE files have been downloaded enough, so that your certificate gets some “reputation”. It is a matter of days or weeks, depending on the number of downloads per day.
It’s a criticized feature implemented by Microsoft and other browser/antivirus companies: you can learn more about it at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/smondal/archive/2013/01/08/windows-smartscreen-prevented-an-unrecognized-app-from-running-running-this-app-might-put-your-pc-at-risk.aspx

<< Though the application is signed with a certificate from Verisign, still the publisher name is displayed as unknown. SmartScreen dialog should be the same as for any other executable, with a “More Info” option, and “Run Anyway” button. Windows SmartScreen alerts users before running unrecognized programs downloaded from the Internet. Microsoft has extended the SmartScreen feature of Internet Explorer to Windows as well to protect users from malware. In general, SmartScreen Protection shows the above message when you try to run a newly released program or an application that has not yet established a reputation. Even though one can easily disable the SmartScreen Protection feature in Windows 8, we don’t advise you to turn off the protection.

Once this is done, the SmartScreen will continue to warn about the application until the certificate develops a reputation. But it would display a valid publisher name instead of unknown publisher. >>

It’s not a problem due to ExeOutput for PHP, because any software program is impacted.
