Windows version is now code signed

I FINALLY got around getting a code signing certificate for the Windows version. You will no longer see the “Unknown Published” warning. From now on, you should see “Verified Publisher: Faroe Software Company Limited”.

Mac version is now notarized by Apple

This fixes the problem mentioned in the post macOS 10.14.6 Mojave specific issue. You will no longer get a scary message in 10.14.6 (or Catalina) when opening the app for the first time a new version has been downloaded.

Windows version available again!

A Windows version is again available for download. It has not yet been code signed, which means that you’ll probably get a (rightfully) paranoid warning from Windows SmartScreen when trying to run the installer.

Clicking on “More Info” will let you run the installer.


I’ll get the signing and verification done as soon as I have an overview of the process.

macOS 10.10 and 10.11 support added

I am pleased to announce that a version supporting macOS 10.10 (Yosemite) and 10.11 (El Capitan) has been added to the downloads section. That gives us a total support range from 10.10 to 10.15.

macOS 10.14.6 Mojave specific issue

If you’re trying to run the current version of Tubulator in macOS 10.14.6 Mojave (or the coming Catalina), you will see the following complaint in a macOS dialog:

“Tubulator 2.app” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.
This software needs to be updated. Contact the developer for more information.

The complaint is due to a security hardening in the newest Mojave version (and Catalina). I will fix the required changes in the coming release — the app needs to be “notarized” apart from the code signing it’s already going through..

In the meantime, there’s a workaround.

  1. Right click on the application icon.
  2. Select “Open”
  3. You’ll see the same dialog as before, but this time you have the option to “Open” or “Cancel”. Click “Open”.
  4. The app launches.
