   MapSpeller™: Ensuring a Secure Installation

Edgetech America, Inc. recognizes that security is of the utmost importance when installing software. Therefore, starting in August 2011, Edgetech is digitally signing all executable or esriaddin files it distributes. A valid certificate signifies that Edgetech America, Inc. is its originator and that the executable or add-in (esriaddin) file has not been modified.

Should you want to verify the certificate yourself or get additional information about it prior to running the setup.exe file; from Windows Explorer:

  1. Unzip the installation package (if applicable)
  2. Right-click on the setup.exe file and select Properties from the context menu
  3. The Digital Certificate tab is available that shows the certificate
  4. For more information, click on the name of the certificate and then the Details button. The status of the certificate is displayed at the top.

The MapSpeller esriaddin file is also signed. Therefore, Edgetech recommends that you set the ArcMap Add-In Manager to only accept digitally signed add-ins:
ArcMap > Customize > Add-In Manager... > Options tab > select the "Require Add-Ins to be digitally signed by a trusted publisher" radio button.

The digital signature status of any add-in accepted by ArcMap can be seen under the Manager Add-Ins tab.

Important Notes
  • Don't rename any of the digitally signed file as that would invalidate its certificate.
  • Please contact Edgetech America, Inc. prior to continuing your installation if you have any doubt about a certificate validity.
