Windows ® Security

Important, please read this before downloading.

All Médiacours programs are available in two versions: version 1 uses .Net Framework 2 ®, version 2 uses .Net Framework 4 ®.

 

.Net Framework 2 is installed with Windows Vista ® and Windows 7 ®. You may need to install it on Windows XP ®. You can use this program to check whether you have it or not . (Despite the warnings given by your browser, the checking program will not harm or modify your computer in any way. If you prefer to install it, click here.) If you do need to install .Net Framework 2, Microsoft ® recommends installing .Net 3.5 (which includes .Net 2.0). You can download and install .Net 3.5 from here.

 

Click on the icons below to download the programs.

Important: don’t change the default program folder name. Always install the Teacher versions before the Student versions.

Nowadays software not distributed by the big 'stores' will cause your browser to show warning messages during the download. Here is the message shown by Google Chrome ®:

 You must click on the arrow button to the right of the Report & Discard button to display other options.

 Click on ‘Keep’ to download the MSI file. Other browsers may show different messages. Select the option to save the file on your computer. MSI files are Windows Installer ® files. They will not run without your consent.

 

Once the MSI files have been downloaded you will see other warning messages:

 

 

(Windows XP, Vista e 7)

 

  

 

(Windows 8, 10)

All these obstacles protect your computer but they make life difficult for independent distributors. Furthermore in the last year or so a new complication has emerged. Antivirus programs attack and destroy perfectly innocent applications! These are usually small executable files especially those not made by Microsoft ® authoring software. For example small files like Mediacours_Perso_Starter1.exe. Here is an example (on the French Version of Windows).

Bearfoos.A!ml may well be the name of a virus but it certainly is not contained in shutdown.exe! I know this because I made it myself. So Médiacours programs must be protected as soon as they have been installed. Here is what to do if you are using the regular Windows 10 ® Security antivirus program provided by Microsoft ®. Some of the key word translations may be slightly different.

Right-click on this icon bottom left.

Click on 'Settings'.

A settings window, probably blue, will appear and after a few seconds you will see this.

Click on 'Update and Security' and then on 'Windows Security'.

Click on 'Protection against viruses and threats'.



Use the scroll bar on the right if necessary and click on 'manage Virus and threat protection settings'.

The scroll bar only appears when the mouse cursor is over it.

Use the scroll bar to display 'Exclusions, then click on 'add or remove ...'.

Click on 'Add …'

You can either protect the complete Médiacours program folder in C:\Program Files (x86) or, if you prefer, protect each executable file ([file name].exe).

Unfortunately this problem is not limited to the Microsoft antivirus. If you use a different antivirus system, please follow similar steps to make sure that Médicours files are protected and not targeted as viruses.
