Windows Protected Your PC

If you try installing the VuMe Demo on a Windows 8 or 10 machine you may come across the message “Windows protected your PC”.  And Seemingly, it prevents you from installing the VuMe Demo.

However, it just hid the install button behind More Info. Click on More Info and you can click the Run anyway button to continue installation.

Why does Windows do this? It’s a security feature designed to help protect your PC.  It can help prevent malicious software from being installed and it also stops unknown software from being installed.  VuMe is classed as an unknown application, because Windows SmartScan is does not yet know about VuMe.

What about viruses? The VuMe demo and full version are hosted on the BMT Micro servers.  BMT Micro are a vendor whom have been distributing software for over 10 years.  Any files you download from their servers (including VuMe) have been virus scanned and confirmed to be clean.

Dev Update 14/07/2018

VUME_Logo2It’s been just over a week since VuMe has been released and it’s development continues towards improving the quality of life for content creators on YouTube.

The next new feature will allow you automatically notify your followers on Twitter about your next published video and optionally include media (image/gif/video) in the tweet.

I will also be working towards automating thumbnail selection for those running a video series, like Let’s Players, Bloggers and <insert you> do.
