I'm unable to install it. I double click the PI-windows-x64-01.08.06.1447-20181215-c.exe file. In 1-2 seconds, a pop-up window appears and disappears in the blink of an eye. It is impossible to read the message.... Well, I filmed this process and when I checked it frame by frame I was able to grab the pop-up window. It reads " Preparing..." but then nothing happens!


FYI, I have uninstalled the 1.8.5 version and this is a Win 7 machine which never had any problems with the installation of the previous versions.


I have had the same difficulty, downloaded file was not at the good length (too short), you must re-download the file. the good size is 285 495 ko. I install the new file, but now, I never receive the activation code, I wait for more an hour.

Hi Sedat,

Can you check that the installation file has been downloaded correctly? On the Software Distribution page you'll find SHA-1 check sums for all downloadable files. Please verify that the file you have downloaded produces the same checksum on your machine.

Computing SHA checksums is trivial on Linux and macOS, but a bit more complicated on Windows due to lack of system support. See here and here for a solution to this problem.

That makes sense... mine is a much shorter file.... thank you so much! Going to re download immediately.

This should not happen now. The server is running normally and all services are operational. Can you please try again to request new license activation codes?

Yesterday afternoon I installed the update on two computers. Everything is perfect. Win 7 x64 and Win 8 x64.  :)  I have to do it now with Ubuntu 18 but I'm afraid  :sad:

Why? It should work fine on Ubuntu 18. Come on!  ;D

That is indeed strange. What this error is telling you is that the internal code signatures in the installation file (for the 1.8.5 version, I assume) have been modified. Something has tampered with the file. You can download the 1.8.5 installation file again if required; it's still on the server.

Worked fine on my Ubuntu 18.04 desktop and 18.10 laptop.

Yes, perfectly worked... but now having difficulty with Hartmut Bornemann repository... https://www.skypixels.at/HVB_Repository/

I'm getting this message:

"https://www.skypixels.at/HVB_Repository/: Network error: schannel: CertGetNameString() failed to match connection hostname (www.skypixels.at) against server certificate names"

Is this a PI problem or does the repository need an update to be compatible with 1.8.6?

Hi Sedat,

I am glad to know 1.8.6 is finally working for you.

That error message denotes a problem with the SSL certificate installed on the www.skypixels.at website. This does not mean that the certificate is incorrect necessarily, just that there are some discrepancies such as mismatched server names or certificate subjects. That's why one should always use EV (Extended Validation) certificates for websites.

You can disable secure connections for this repository, that is, specify http:// instead of https://, and it should work. Insecure connections are not advisable these days but in this way you'll be able to download updates from this website.

Good Job Juan,
Happy to see the new licensing system and the nice news.

Only one question: where can I find the new SubframeSelector tool? the one under Script-Batch processing seems to be the old one.
