Re: Zim Desktop Wiki 0.66 for Windows is ready to download
I downloaded the installer file of desktop version and tested it for
virus infection in two different ways.
The first test was a local scan using Windows Defender that is installed
in my machine (Win10 32-bit). The second test was an on-line scan with
In both scans no trace of infection was found, but if I try to run the
installer it is blocked by Windows Defender which informs the following:
Supplier: Unknown Supplier
Maybe it is just a case of registering the software supplier in MS
database? Or, maybe some information that must be embedded in the
package? I don't know how this work.
Anyway, I have sent the suspicious installer file to the Kaspersky virus
lab and they probably will be able to find any "harmful code", if any.
I'll keep you informed in case they send me an answer.
By the way, who is going to take over Windows package creation for next

VirusTotal.com reports that (as of today) Baidu and Bkav virus scanners
find "harmful" code in these Zim installer. Other than abandoning all of
my tools, I do not know how to move forward with this problem.
Starting with this release I am no longer signing the installer
packages, and while I believe they are free of harmful code, I can't
promise that I am correct. You must make your own determination about
whether you should use my packages or not.
Special thanks to Stephen Dintaman for assistance with this build cycle.
I have posted the Desktop and Portable installer packages, such as they
are, on http://www.glump.net/software/zim-windows .
The packages were built on a fresh Windows 7 64-bit virtual machine, and
they should work on any 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows that is
still supported by Microsoft.
