EpicTable Installer Certificate Issue

A couple users recently reported issues with Internet Explorer and the new Microsoft Edge browser claiming that "The signature of EpicTable- is corrupt or invalid." It's neither. It is, however, signed with a hash algorithm that Microsoft browsers no longer like. If you right-click on the file in Explorer (not to be confused with IE or Internet Explorer) and select Properties and then Digital Signatures, you can see that Windows says it's a valid signature. IE and Edge don't like it. Chrome is fine with it. It's also the case that despite the browsers' complaint, the file downloads just fine, and you can go to your Downloads file and double-click on it to run it, and life is good. Meanwhile, I'm going to go figure out how to make my not-so-cheap signing certificate with a year left before its expiration more palatable to the Microsoft browsers.

A big thanks to the people who reported this to me.

  • Please let me know if you see this again. I *did* go through the pain of getting a replacement certificate issued and re-signed my installer and binaries. Right about that time, another Windows update came out, and as far as I can tell, rolled back the disdain Windows had for my old certificate. So, the new cert is in 1.3.6 (coming soon) and in a that I apparently no longer have to release. The existing download now seems to work with all browsers. Sigh.
