Having trouble downloading our software?
Trouble downloading past versions of our software? If you’re using Microsoft’s Internet Explorer you might be seeing an error saying something like “The publisher could not be verified” or “Invalid Digital Signature” and then there’s no option available to save the download. This is caused by very tight security implemented within Internet Explorer. There are two options. Download the software using a different browser like Firefox or do the following:
- In Internet Explorer, make sure the Menu Bar is viewable and goto Tools/Internet Options. If you can’t find it, do a Windows search on “Internet Tools”
- Click the “Advanced” tab and scroll down to the “Security” section.
- Check “Allow software to run or install even if the signature is invalid”.
- Click “Apply” and then “OK”.
- Restart your download and at the end of it you should now have the option to click “Save”, “Run” or “Open” the download.
