SmartScreen issue with v7.6.8 installer

Postby JWhy » Fri Apr 17, 2020 12:30 pm

Hello,

Microsoft Defender SmartScreen pops up when launching the installation program for this new version 7.6.8 ( fah-installer_7.6.8_x86.exe ), on Windows 10 ( screenshot #1 )
It seems to be caused by an invalid/outdated signing cert ( screenshot #2 )
The installer is probably still trustworthy, but it could be very worrying for newcomers to receive this warning and probably a reason not to join the project, which would be a shame. :/

Is it possible to fix this ?

Thanks,

JY.
ps: I don't have this popup with fah-installer_7.5.1_x86.exe

Unfortunately, I can't view either of your screenshots. However, I believe that this is the issue you're talking about: https://github.com/FoldingAtHome/fah-cl ... /issues/12

Yes, same issue. Thanks!

(I changed the URL for both screenshots, maybe it will work better now)
