Error message when opening a pdf-file

Post by *FVG »

On one of my devices, all with Windows 10 and Total Commander V9.50: when I try to open a PDF file in TC, I get the message below.

(Translated from Dutch)
Foxit Reader has been opened by the following app without a valid signature.
This may indicate a security issue.
If you know what is going on and want to continue, click OK. If you are unsure, click Cancel.
App: C: \ Program Files \ Totalcmd \ TOTALCMD64.EXE
Remember your choice for this application: Yes / No

The PDF will only be opened after confirming with OK.
The error message appears every time even if I indicate that my settings must be remembered.
On all my other devices I never get that error message.

Does anyone known how to solve?

Apparetny Foxit thinks that the totalcmd64.exe is unsigned. However, it is signed by 2 valid certificates (one SHA256 and one SHA1, so called dual signing). Please verify that your copy of TC is in fact signed by pressing Alt+Enter on TOTALCMD64.EXE and checking the tab "Digital Signatures". If it is, then please report the bug to Foxit software.
