Snowpro Installation and Security Considerations

Snowpro Installation and Security Considerations

Snowpro Plus+ Release 34 has been updated to work with the newest Windows 10 Operating System. Windows 10 contains many features to protect users from spam, viruses, and other nasty online problems.

Software developers like Gasman use the web to deliver software to purchasers. In order to make sure that these programs are not modified with viruses, Windows 10 performs a number of tests before running the software.

As part of our development we use the Microsoft Authenticode Code Signing technology to certify the Snowpro Plus+ software. This is done by appending a special certificate to the software (which only we can do) that allows the Windows 10 operating system to check the source of the software (which is Gasman Industries Ltd.) and to check whether the software has been modified since production. If there are any issues with the software then Windows 10 will report this and not run the software.

Microsoft (creator of Windows 10) compiles a database of all software downloaded using web browers. When a new software such as Snowpro is first released it tracks how often it is downloaded and reports the software as unknown. Overtime as Snowpro is downloaded without report of viruses Windows 10 then reports the software as reliable.

What this means is initially when Snowpro Plus+ is first released you might get the following message from Windows 10 when you first run the Snowpro installation program as follows:

Simply click on the "More info" link to get the following dialog, then click the "Run Anyway" button. Rest assured that the Snowpro Plus+ installation is safe.

 After a while as Snowpro is installed more times and used these messages
will disappear.
