Ok, we have a new process that will create a digital certificate for each of the internal .exe and .dll files that are extracted and deployed by the installer. This is done with a "self-sign" certificate from SignPath. Then the actual installer .exe file gets our most recent full-blown certificate that you guys helped build "reputation" for.

This should pass SmartScreen and hopefully all anti-virus issues, and be the mid-long term solution.

Get this latest build from:

and install it please. Let us know about any issues...

Thanks.

Roughly the same as before:
- SmartScreen / Edge / Defender were fine with downloading and installing (Defender not updated)
- VirusTotal resulted in 3 vendors flagging the release (BitDefender Theta like before, Avira No Cloud and WithSecure)
- Avast's Ransomware Shield produced the same alert, even though the scan by the AV itself turned out clean for everything (virus signatures updated)
So, the changes resulted in other VT flags that replaced the earlier ones, and had no effect on those easy to trigger Avast shields.

Quick update: my latest test showed that the Avast's Ransomware Shield alert is gone, and so are the other flagging on VirusTotal, except of course Bitdefender Theta (proof that machine learning = AI = hype for now). So I think all "issues" are solved at this moment. :thumbup:

EDIT: Rushed to conclusions, corrected above.
