MH won't start --> invalid signature.

Postby soontekk » Fri Jun 25, 2021 12:13 pm

Hi good people who often make humans.

I tried to install the latest stable release (1.2.0) for my win10 64 box.
It sports a threadripper and an rtx 3090.
When i want to start MH..exe it reports a dialog saying "invalid signature".
I think my machine doesn't trust it.
Anything i can do to get it to work ?

Cheers all.

Greetings,
and welcome! In attempt to assist you-as this does not seem makehuman specific, a couple of questions? Have you noticed this problem with other executable files? Is your bios up to date on your nice machine? Are you working with internet explorer? Have you allowed internet explorer(if using this) to allow software to run or install even if the signature is invalid? Have you tried to run this in administrative mode? The more info we all have to consider the best chance you have to swat this bug!

Hi Elv,

First off, thanks for your help.
It does seem my main system is very strickt on MH than my laptop (just successfully installed).
I can install exe's no problem but MH seems not to get through some security setting of sorts.
Bios is up to dat and i only use chrome not IE.
I tried run as administrator but that resulted in the same dialog.
I also tried to google but i get loads of things on adding a signature to an office doc :)
I tried disabeling windows security checks but no go.
I'm running out of options it seems.

Cheers

Greetings,
Sorry to hear this is such a problem! My suggestion is to attempt to fix or assign the digital signature in a way that your pc is satisfied. When you right click the executable for makehuman and follow the rabbit hole to its true file location you end up at the python executable for makehuman. I would suggest(guardedly as I am not entirely sure) that you right click this exe file and choose properties-digital signature-and check the timestamp there-Then choose details-view certificate-and attempt there to install certificate. I am again not entirely sure this is the issue but it seems rationally possible and cannot hurt likely.
Good luck and let us know what happens or if you try and have success with other trials.

Allo Again!
Had one more thought, rather obvious but such is the state of my brain lately lol! Did you rule out the obvious of corruption with a fresh download? Also was there any error code along with the complaint of no siggy?

Hi Elv,

Thank you very much for your help and subconcious problem solving :)
I have been tracing the signature thing down the rabbit hole trying to allow MH to run the installer.
Not yet found it but it should have to do with some security setting.
One other thought is that my system uses networkdrives (nas) which could matter.
I did try multiple downloads (4) so that isn't a problem.
I will try more things and if i find anything i will post it here for sure.
Thanks a lot.

Do you per any chance have different antivirus solutions on the computers? Some extremely rigid antivirii have a setting that says that any exe it doesn't immediately recognize must be a virus. Obviously this will cause a lot of false positives.

What Windows 10 are you running on the X64 box?
Right click on Start button , click on Settings. Under Windows specifications what is the edition? If it is an S edition it can only run apps from the Windows Store but you can convert it to a non S version.

Hi Geoff,

I'm running version 21H1 on all my machines.
De difference though is that the wks where MH won't install is a win 10 pro as oposed to the laptops that are win home.
Maybe pro has tighter security ?
