Future deprecation planned

SHA-1 signatures

To comply with Windows security updates, we will deprecate SHA-1 signatures in a future version. The impact is described below (we take 64bit Windows 7 as an example in below screenshots).

If the deprecation is implemented:

  • When you try to install the Dynamsoft Service, you will get the following two error for “Unknown Publisher”.



  • When you run the ActiveX Edition in IE, you will get a prompt to allow its execution.


For more information, check out Preparing for the deprecation of SHA-1 signatures from Microsoft.

The prompts are one-time, once you accept the “risk”, the software will install and run as usual.

The recommended fix is to patch the operating system, you can find the patch here.
