Npgsql v4.0.8 - unknown publisher #2538
Btw. i tried to install Npgsql v4.0.7 on the same PC and this was istalled succesfuly.
Err.Msg: Windows Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk.
Strange, we just use the same build each time and AFAIK nothing has changed (@YohDeadfall any ideas)?
Just to be sure, you're referring to the MSI coming from here, right: https://github.com/npgsql/npgsql/releases/tag/v4.0.8?
You mean 4.0.7? Yeah, pretty sure - I never build that locally. I'm also not sure why building on my machine would change anything compared to Appveyor...
Thinking about this again, it actually seems completely normal for this to happen - I'm not sure why it didn't happen in 4.0.7.
Weirdly enough, I've recently received a pretty urgent request to have the Npgsql assembly and MSI signed (not strong-named - signed), this seems to be the same thing. This can be important for people using Npgsql in PowerBI and other .NET Framework/GAC scenarios. It seems easy enough to do, except that we'd need to get a certificate from somewhere.
Responded via e-mail. .NET Foundation is able to provide certificates to member projects. I'm happy to answer questions if there are concerns on joining.
