I love your program. It runs fine in Windows XP, but when I run it in Windows Vista Home Basic I always get the Open File - Security Warning "This publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?" When I click Run none of my preset windows for your app appear; only the default settings.
Can you put your publisher info into the executable so it runs without this warning in Vista Home Basic?
Thanks and regards,

Very fast response, thank you.
Note that I unpacked the ZIP file before installing, so I don't think that was the source of the problem.
The error happened when I used the Q-Dir shortcut on the Vista Quick Launch bar (this shortcut was created by your installation). I deleted that shortcut and created a new shortcut directly from the executable, moving the newly created shortcut from the desktop to the Quick Launch bar. Vista asked me a couple more times if the application was safe, then seemed to accept that. Don't see the warnings anymore. But the "Extras|Q-Dir always ...|With current window position" setting still won't work in my Vista.
I think if you added a digital signature to your installation executable and to your application executable, Vista will not complain. As a layer of security Vista now looks for pedigree in executables, which I think is reasonable.
Q-Dir is a great product and I find it indispensible. I appreciate all your efforts to tune it so it runs well on both XP and Vista. I was in the software business a few years back and know how much work this is.
Thanks and best wishes for 2009,
