this is not an urgent issue,
however i myself seldom run unsigned .exe on windows anymore.
usually from trusted source like github or with a checksum like sha1.
It cost several hundred euro per year to buy the cert for that signature.
so FOSS programmers/users (who hate commercial things) usually accept sign using PGP key,
as in veracrypt:
EXE Installer: VeraCrypt Setup 1.26.7.exe (PGP Signature)
MSI Installer (64-bit) for Windows 10 and later: VeraCrypt_Setup_x64_1.26.7.msi (PGP Signature)
Portable version: VeraCrypt Portable 1.26.7.exe (PGP Signature)
Debugging Symbols: VeraCrypt_1.26.7_Windows_Symbols.zip (PGP Signature)
or put onto github, with checksum e.g. sha1.
these will make the program look more professional, and give users more trust.
ps: myself dont need this standalone IDE, just a suggestion. thx
Sorry, that's not something I'm interested in doing - the standalone exe is really there as a fallback for pre-Windows 10 installs (which would be very rare now), and hasn't been updated in a while.
If someone thinks there is a real concern I could just delete the download but I don't think that is really in anyone's best interests.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
