A setup release candidate is available at:
Both worked flawlessly for me. I run Windows 10,
Creator Update (most recent release AFAIK).
One difference from before is that I get a Windows
Defender SmartScreen pop-up. I have to click the
"More info" option and then a "Run anyway" button
appears, allowing me to run the setup program.
AFAICT, this happens only the *first* time I run
the setup program. Thereafter, WIndows Defender
does not complain.
Thanks for testing.
Is Windows 10 1703 more picky about letting you run unsigned executables?
I think so - I don't recall needing to do this with setup ever before.
As discussed previously, the problems with getting setup signed are logistical rather than technical.
It's not a huge deal, particularly since it happens only the
first time I run setup. I suppose the concern would be users
who don't figure out the right clicks or who are suspicious
of doing that, and automated installs.
