I’ve created ShixxNOTE program before almost 12 years ago. First awarded version was ShixxNOTE 4.net. Program was published on DVD by croatian BUG magazine specialized for computers, gadgets and shareware programs. Back then BUG magazine rated my program with 10/10. Now after so many years and many changes in the program, I decided to put discount on ShixxNOTE 6.net program price. So check program order page and purchase your version 🙂
I hope you will appreciate this.
Again I am writing about installing ShixxNOTE 6.net Build 138 on Windows 10 and first problem which will occur. It will happen after you unzip downloaded ShixxNOTE program zip file and unzip it and then when you click on “ShixxNOTE6netT.exe” program setup file to start setup.
Immediately you will get this screen on your computer from Windows. It say that “Windows SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized application from starting…” and almost 90% of users will click on “Don’t run” button because they trust Microsoft. But if you analyze more that Windows dialog you will see link “More info”. I know that this is annoying. But if you want ShixxNOTE 6.net to run on your computer(s) you must trust me and click on “More info” link. After you click it you will get second dialog from Windows SmartScreen.
Suddenly you will see Application name, Publisher and most important button “Run anyway” which will continue setup of ShixxNOTE 6.net program. Only if you do like this you will be able to install ShixxNOTE 6.net on your computer(s). Please trust me you will not install anything malicious. Before on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 you didn’t have to do this because there was not this annoying screen.
This Windows SmartScreen dialog is appearing only on Windows 10 and because as a developer now you have to pay to Microsoft about 20 USD just to be developer and developer Windows applications. So I did it. And then I have to upload Microsoft version of package to them. But before that they scan your exe file and check if it contains some malicious code. It is OK and my “ShixxNOTE6net.exe” file pass all that. But because I develop ShixxNOTE in Visual C++ not in new one Visual Studio 2015 I am not able to create Microsoft package which only they accept if you want Windows SmartScreen not be seen when you start program setup file. I tried to compile and create release in Visual Studio 2015 from my source code of ShixxNOTE but I got about 10 errors and I can’t build stable release of VS2015 MFC application. I tried to remove those errors and I did remove about 7 of them but final 3 errors are something about manifest and how will VS20015 compile my old Visual C++ source code. Those 3 errors I couldn’t fix. I don’t know how. Because of that now all users who wants to try ShixxNOTE 6.net Trial version 30-days with full functionality must click on “hidden” link “More info” and button “Run anyway” if they want to try ShixxNOTE program 😦
So friends till I figure how to avoid this SmartScreen dialog please click on “More info” and button “Run anyway”. I know I loose more customers because of this but Microsoft is in charge.

Before one month finally I decided to create and publish new ShixxNOTE Program Home Page site on same URL: www.shixxnote.com
Here are some screen shots of it bellow.
When you start ShixxNOTE setup file on Windows 10 you will get dialog below saying that “Windows protected your PC”. Windows SmartScreen prevent setup to start ?! And also it scares you with this sentence “Running this app might put your PC at risk”. This is not correct. ShixxNOTE setup file is 100% safe and I can assure you that your PC will not be in any risk if you start setup file. Why Microsoft put ShixxNOTE setup file in risk group is because now they only trust recognized apps to run. Which means that app must be checked by Microsoft and be created to pass all theirs validation. This is new thing in Windows 10, before in Windows 7 or Windows XP there was nothing to scare you. If you want to install ShixxNOTE 6.net on your PC you must do the following. Check this images and read the text I wrote in green box 🙂
On first dialog you have to click on “More info” link.
On second image you have to click on button “Run anyway” and program setup will start. After that you will have ShixxNOTE 6.net installed on your computer 🙂
I am sorry for this but Microsoft decided that my program setup file is unrecognized. But don’t worry my program is 100% safe and if any of you who installed ShixxNOTE 6.net Trial version or Registered version have some problems after installing program please write comment.
Now I am little worried because people belive Microsoft rather than me, Ozren Sirola, ShixxNOTE program author. So now I am loosing my potential customers just because users are affraid or they doesn’t know that they must click on “More info” and then “Run anyway” button.
I hope this article and ShixxNOTE reputation (listed on English Wikipedia) will assure you that program is perfectly safe.

Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 550 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 9 trips to carry that many people.
Since Google Chrome and other web browsers have been updated to new version I am having problem with simple download of ShixxNOTE program setup file (zip file). Because of that many of users doesn’t know and they simply trust Google and they don’t download ShixxNOTE program setup file. This is very big problem for me. And now I have to address to Google that ShixxNOTE is 100% secure for download.
Here is the images I get on my Google Chrome (it is on Croatian language) but it is the same warning on any language.
After I click on “Primary Download” image button I get this Google Chrome warning.
So just to inform all who is reading this post do as you can see on image above and click on “Keep file” because I assure you that ShixxNOTE setup file (zip) is 100 percent valid and secure. I don’t know why Google did this but now that is the only way you can download ShixxNOTE 6.net setup file.
