    Free LANsurveyor Express for Microsoft Visio certificate error


      I received an email offering Lansurveyor express for free. I downloaded it, but when I try to install it windows says that I cannot install software from this vendor.

      After a bit of investigating it seems the certificate has been revoked by the certification authority.

      First off, since Windows seems to actually be doing its job in this case, is this truly from Solarwinds? Secondly, if so, is it safe to install? What would be the implications of allowing this certificate? Was it revoked due to a specific compromise regarding it?

      I must say this does not leave a good first impression of this product, having it lead me to believe right off that it is a security threat. The certificate was revoked 2 years ago.
