Windows 10 “More Info” and “Run anyway” button

December 6, 2016 Leave a comment

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.

setup1

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.

setup2

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.

New web site is ASP.NET web application but I don’t need to much of .NET Framework so I just used HTML5, CSS and some JavaScripts to make site cool and refreshing. I also left link to old site but I think soon I will remove it. I hope you like it🙂

Installing program on Windows 10

December 30, 2015 1 comment

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.

WindowsProtect_01

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🙂

WindowsProtect_02

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.

Kind regards,

ShixxNOTE on Windows 10

October 22, 2015 Leave a comment

After Microsft released new operating system Windows 10 I had to check if ShixxNOTE 6.net is working as usual on it. Answer is YES. But there are some issues. First download of setup file when you got web browser warning, then when you pass this and start installation setup file you will get Windows “Program Compatibility Assistant”. Windows 10 warns you about program that there is no publisher name and ask question if you want to proceed anyway. If you reach this point then everything is OK and you will install ShixxNOTE newest version. Many people are afraid and they click as Microsoft told them and they simply abort installation or download.

I think that Windows 10 is a great OS better than 8.1 and it is cool. So maybe I will have to modify my setup program to be trusted by Microsoft and then write some manifest which will tell Microsoft that ShixxNOTE is program which can be trusted. Never mind maybe one day they will release some update and make this process easier.

After you have installed ShixxNOTE program on your computer with Windows 10 running on it everything works as usual. I received mail that sending note via email is not working. I need to check this problem. But if you set that Outlook is your default email program I think sening notes via email will work.

Here are some screen shots of ShixxNOTE 6.net running on Windows 10 computer. Enjoy🙂

If you want to see program icon always you need to set task bar properties as on image below.

Try it and you will see that it is better than Windows Sticky notes which doesn’t have anything with communication. Till then use ShixxNOTE program as a stickies and for instant messaging.

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.
