  4. Windows Server 2008 security warning when trying to run BlackFog

Windows Server 2008 triggers a security warning when trying to execute BlackFog because it is using code signed with a SHA-256 Authenticode certificate.

Windows Server 2008 requires a patch to accept modern applications signed with the more secure SHA256 Authenticode certificate. Microsoft released an update for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 to support kernel-mode code signed with a SHA-256 certificate.

The recommended operating system software update is available from Microsoft TechNet: Microsoft Security Advisory 3033929.

Error Code 6:

After applying this patch you may also get Error code 6 when trying to load the application. You can see this within BlackFog’s log file. This means that your system requires a further patch to make sure it can load drivers using Driver Framework 1.1. This is documented in Microsofts knowledge base where you can download the patch for your machine.

Windows Server 2008 R2
