Avoid "The Publisher could not be verified..." when trying to run EasyCopy on Windows
Open EasyCopy without getting the error message " The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software" introduced by Microsoft Windows XP SP 2.
The security alert was as mentioned introduced with Microsoft XP service pack 2 and appears when an application not verified by Microsoft is run over a network. If you install locally or 'push' EasyCopy to run on the clients, the warning does not appear.
If you like to run EasyCopy from a net work drive the settings to solve the inexpediency has to be changed on each computer encountering the problem.
You either need to have a medium low security level on your Intranet , which is the default and defined separately from your general security settings
or set a Custom level under Security Settings - Local Intranet Zone for "Launching applications and unsafe files" to "Enable".
You also need to add the network server to the Local Intranet Zone.
In the Control Panel, under Internet Options, Security, Local intranet, click on "Sites".
In this dialog you should have toggled on all three options as shown in the below dialog.
Click on Advanced and enter the EasyCopy installation drive to the zone:
Like "s:" or the IP address and click "Add".
To get an effect you need to shut down and restart the computer.
If the above does not work alternatively you could try to run gpedit.msc
Go to User Configuration, Administrative Templates, Windows Componets, Attachment manager
Add "*.exe" to the "inclusion list for moderate risk file types.
"This policy setting allows you to configure the list of moderate risk file types. If the attachment/file is in the list of moderate risk file types and is from the restricted or Internet zone, Windows prompts the user before accessing the file. This inclusion list overrides the list of potentially high risk file types built into Windows and it takes precedence over the Low risk inclusion list but has a lower precedence than the High risk inclusion list (where an extension is listed in more than one inclusion list.)"
In other words it allows you to run a .exe from the Intranet zone without promt, but it will warn before running a .exe from the Internet.
