User Account Control - Unknown Publisher

Asked by Bobby Tarumi on 2018-05-20

Hi there!

I downloaded Inkscape 0.92.3 and ran into the yellow Unknown Publisher message in the User Account Control warning. Should the download be from an Unknown Publisher? I downloaded directly from inkscape.org so I was just gonna ignore the warning, but I figure I'd ask just for peace of mind.

64-bit .exe download file
Windows 10 Version 1709, OS Build 16299.431
Google Chrome Version 66.0.3359.181 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Thanks!

Bobby Tarumi

Yes, that's normal.

If you want to check the authenticity after downloading the file, do an md5sum and compare to the one listed on the download page for the file you downloaded:
