Windows safety checks
Be careful : After a Windows update, you computer may show you this warning (I’m sorry, I don’t have it in french). It’s a false warning ! I suppose a next Windows update should make it disappear.
If you see this message, you have 3 choices :
- You can click on More informations, and click on Execute (I think it’s this, in english).
- You can move Jedicut_Setup.exe file to another repository, and execute it again. It’s strange, but the warning desappears.
- You don’t trust Jedicut, and you abandon this install.
If you launch Jedicut_Setup.exe, you should see another Windows control. It’s a yellow one. You can see it when installing many softwares like Firefox, Notepad++, Chrome…
