Installation Notification - Digital Certificate

Question asked by Michael Buchli Employee on Apr 4, 2017

Because of HCL merger we had to change the digital signing certificate to HCL. Since the certificate is new, it has not got registered with Microsoft database that it’s a safe program, so every time someone runs the SOLIDWORKS CAM 2017 Beta install they may get the following warning. You will get this error only once. Once you click on “more info” and Run, the warning will go away forever.


The reputation score for HCL signing certificate increases over time and eventually the Smart Screen warning will go away
