Stable r221 problem?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Jan 19, 2016 5:24 am

Today I saw Stable r221 was available, so I downloaded it with no problem, but when I went to run the .exe; Smartscreen popped up saying it could be unsafe and that it was an unrecognized app. I don't think it would be unsafe, but has anyone else seen this? Did you run it without problems. I'm using Win. 8.1 if that matters. Thanks.

I had it, im running windows 10, the message said that windows had protected my pc and stopped the app from running, so i ran it manually, and works just fine.

Thanks for responding. I wonder if anyone else has had any problems.

I think Windows sometimes shows that message for downloaded executables that it deems are "not commonly downloaded". Obviously when we first release a download, it's not commonly downloaded yet, so I think it needs some time to recognise that the file is OK. I'm a bit surprised it shows a message, the installer is digitally signed to prove it comes from us.

That makes sense, but I do wonder what "xifhf" stands for in the .exe name since I noticed the other versions don't have that. Thanks for informing me.

That is very worrying. My file looked like this construct2-r221-setup_klfgf.exe and had same message, which I bypassed. @Ashley

Why is it very worrying; what do you think is wrong? I wonder why they have different names.

There are some random characters in the filename to help distinguish different users. It's normal and to be expected.
