Dear,

Version 4.9.1

The signature of Archi.exe is invalid.

Can you please update and verify? Thanks.

Hi,

what do you mean by "invalid" and what signature?

Perhaps you could provide some detail about your issue that we could act on...

Thanks for your reply.

Once the application is installed under $ProgramFiles - the Archi.Exe executable signature is not valid

The "Archi.exe" file is generated from a base "eclipse.exe" file signed by the Eclipse Foundation. The Archi icon is embedded into it so, yes, the digital signature will no longer be valid. This has been the case since Archi 4.6. In fact, Archi is not the only app with an exe file of this format, download this app (http://directory.apache.org/studio/) and you'll see the same digital signature and "invalid" message.

Here are your options:
