I went to install 4.1 on Win8 and it gave me that message.  When I downloaded the patch to up it to 4.2.1 it gave me the same thing.

I'm not sure if there's a way for the dev team to contact MS about it to get it added to a whitelist if there is one, but I figured I'd at least let them know.

Easy fix, don't use Win 8. ;)

Sorry, but this once more proofs that Win 8 is a restrictive bitch.

It's a warning. A warning means you can proceed if YOU think it is safe.

Signing an application costs upwards of $700 a year, so that is not going to happen.

If you downloaded the game from ModDb, I can assure you there is nothing fishy with the install.

It's a big process, and if you are not selling your software or making ad revenue it is in no way worth the cost. The only thing you are buying is "credibility" but in the end it really means nothing. I can sign a virus if I want, it just makes it easier for MS to "pull the plug" by revoking the certificate I signed my virus with.

What about applications for Linux? Does Linux have some certificate checker?

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.
Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.
Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.
