Can somebody explain to me why the fuck creating apps on windows sucks so much ASS!!!! Not only the Electron app that I'm creating is a complete MESS, but on top of that, you need it EV signed, or it will be detected as malware. The fucking Digicert people charge $664/year for it!!!! I only wanted to do a stupid productivity app, and It was going to be free, now I don’t know what to do with it. FUCK

    Do exe apps have this issue? I create programs for windows using Qt. Have not seen programs be identified as malware.

    At the very least, it keeps people from being drowned in even more bloated Electron molasses where you need a 5 GHz CPU just for making the cursor blink. ^^

    @Fast-Nop yeah, forgot about that Slow AF, but useful if you want to give people the chance to use the app online or as a desktop app.

    I have been giving out my programs as exe-s to friends for years, never signed a single one and never got a warning.

    @SortOfTested It's not an OS anymore, rather a social study how much crap people are willing to put up with. Turns out that there's still room to the bottom.

    @Lor-inc I believe the cause is in the installer process itselft, maybe you're using a .exe without an installer?

    @duckycode I am, however an exe can do all the things an msi would including requesting administrator rights, so what's the point?

    Even WPF can do well and easy.

    Or even webforms

    Or even native lib in C++

    Or even fucking VBA
