Hi Dan,
Stephanie just installed your latest update for VueMinder and then her computer said that VueMinder does not have a valid digital signature my computer is fine it is only on Stephanie's computer.
This has happened 3 other times on Stephanie's computer when updating vueminder ultimate on her computer so far.

I believe the warning is because I haven't digitally signed the VueMinder executable, and the VueMinder executable is attempting to get the correct time (for consistent time-stamping of changes) from an internet time server.

I'll update the next version to also sign the executable so you won't see this message from Norton anymore. In the meantime, you can safely ignore the message, or select the "Do not notify me again" option. You could also open the Program Options in VueMinder and uncheck "Use internet time servers", although I wouldn't recommend doing that because it could lead to various syncing issues.

Version 2020.01 has been released. The VueMinder executable (vueminder.exe) has been digitally signed in this version, for increased security and reduced likelihood of antivirus programs complaining about VueMinder doing benign things like trying to get the current time.

To update, click the "Help -> Check for Updates" menu command.
