Latest version trips windows SmartScreen, first update I've seen do that personally (and a search didn't turn up anything).

New cert? Looks like it was issued on Dec. 2 2019 - if it's used for everything on DonationCoder, it should probably be trusted by now.

Weird..

What error does it give? Does it alert on the installer or the ScreenshotCaptor exe?
If you download and unzip the portable app, does it react the same?
Screenshot?

It alerts on the installer, screenshot attached. Portable app is fine.

SmartScreen is kind-of a black box, but I know it checks the certificate that signs an installer (or any executable, maybe) against some online database. If you generate a new cert, people will start getting the error until enough people have allowed it to run (establishing some "trustworthiness" for the certificate). It may do other things, but I only know that much because it happened not too long ago with git for windows, though that only took a day or two to clear up iirc.

Screenshot Captor version 4.36.2 - about:



Screenshot Captor version 4.36.2 - update check:



Screenshot Captor - website - 2020-02-05:



The version from 2020-01-02 was supposed to be 4.36.1. I think that there was even another release in between but I may be wrong. These version number discrepancies are not a new phenomenon, this has happened quite often before with many of Mouser's programs. As a result I am never sure which is the latest version of a certain program. In my humble opinion Mouser is a very good programmer but when it comes to versioning he is very negligent. This is not a complaint but just an observation. The ideal situation would be if website, file version (both installer and executable), about and update check show the same version number but I am afraid that this would be too much for Mouser.

The cause of the version number discrepancies is probably because many development tools makes version numbers a pain.. or at least non-trivial thing to maintain. More often than not, it is an option hidden away in some dialog, and assuming you'd want to script it, that bit of data can be stored in some part of the project that does not monitor changes as well as a common source file would. Which then makes setting up a build an annoying task of closing the development environment, running your version update script, and then restarting the application so you can build the program with the correct version number.

Ideally, you'd want to just be like 'ok, look in VERSION or some actual source file for the version definition' and never ever have any more fuss about it. But in practice, you tend to have to do a manual rodeo of configuring it every single time assuming you can't afford spending a good afternoon just setting up a configuration script and other workflow that doesn't somehow blow up your unhappy IDE in the process.

The only time it ever seems to work fine is if you use all the tools from a single developer, which means they also can do their own silly auto-versioning logic to bump version and build numbers all over the place. But in practice, very few products (especially free tools) use Microsoft products for their entire workflow.

(Caveat: Maybe modern products are better about automating version stuff from a cental location, buuuut I've never ever seen it be painless...)

On my more popular applications, like Screenshot Captor, sometimes I release a new version, and then find some tiny little thing I want to tweak a few days later, which really isn't important.  At that point, I'm hesitant to tell the updater data about it, because it will basically trigger a new download for everyone, when it's not important.

So in these cases, I'll update the internal version to like 4.36.2 but I won't modify the version in the updater online file.

Let me just say thanks for the software.
I am a professional programmer that has his own set of tools
but using this software, in its simplest, the most when needed.
 And thanks again.
