UPDATE 12/20/2021 - The validation for the Comodo Extended Evaluation Code Signing Certificate for future releases is now complete but I have to wait for them to mail the credentials to me. Once I receive the credentials I can sign the Windows application and upload it. If you do not want to install now please try back later when that is available. Thank you.
UPDATE 11/27/2021 - we are working obtaining a Comodo Extended Evaluation Code Signing Certificate for future releases. If you do not want to install now please try back later when that is available. Thank you.
This software is signed with a standard Comodo Code Signing Certificate. In the past that was adequate to allow it to be run on Windows. Apparently, these days, that is not enough for Microsoft Windows Defender. Microsoft now requires time for a newly signed application to "establish a reputation" before they allow it to be run without user intervention. There is no telling how long that will take. As an alternative, a Comodo Extended Evaluation Code Signing Certificate can be purchased for an additional cost that I am not willing to pay at this time.
Until Microsoft decides enough people have downloaded and used this software you will see the following message when you first run it after downloading it.
If you are willing to trust us, please click the "More Info" link and choose "Run Anyway" to run the software. You will not see this message again after that and you will be helping to build the reputation of the software for future users.
Here is a link to an interesting non-technical video on the whole code signing process.
