Security warning: the publisher could not be verified...

Recommended Posts

I've just downloaded what claims to be the 6.5 windows client from the Dantz site. When I go to run the downloaded .exe, IE gives a security warning that the "The publisher could not be verifed." WTF? At the prices that Dantz charges for the software they should be able to spring for a certificate to be a Windows verified software vendor. I could understand if the software was shareware, but at $1000's a site (or more) I expect better.

Yes, but the clients download .exe's are not. When you download a client and go to unzip it, you get a security warning. With all the spoofing and phishing go on, it's important that vendors get certified!

Have you tried installing the latest version, 7.0 to see if it gives the same warning? I have never seen these warnings myself during install.

Actually the warning isn't during install, it's during the unpacking of the .exe download. The publisher of the .exe can't be verified. Once unloaded the application is verified.
