Hello, len

The fact is Microsoft and some other companies seem to stop accepting digital signatures which use SHA1 hashing algorithm and recommend to replace it by more recent SHA-2 or SHA-3. Hence the warning messages in Windows 10/8.1 and Internet Explorer during the download.

But the digital signature we use in our installation files is valid, only it uses SHA-1 and not SHA-2, so you can be sure the installation file won't harm your computer. We in our turn soon will make the transition to SHA-2, but it will take some time.

You can make sure the signature is valid by opening the Preferences window > Digital Signatures tab for the installation file.

You can install it despite the warning by choosing Run Anyway.

If you have problem downloading installation file, you should right click on the AWM installation file item in the list of downloads and choose Run Anyway.
