Trend Micro error with Inkdrop 4.4.0 or later

Hi Takuya san,

Congratulations to your great success in 2019!
I’ve been using Inkdrop on my company laptop. There had been no problem with it until Inkdrop 4.3.4. However, with the later version, Trend Micro software generates “Threats/Violations Found” message when I try to open Inkdrop and it cannot start… I know this is not an app issue but my company IT security policy issue. I’m wondering if there is any way to solve this issue somehow. For your information, I’m using zip file version of Inkdrop version 4.3.4. Thank you.

Hi Kazutaka-san,

Happy holidays!
So, are you on Windows?
Yes, that is a false-positive warning of Trend Micro.
In 4.4.0, Inkdrop has upgraded its framework called Electron from 3.1.4 to 6.0.11 (See changelog) and I guess that might cause the issue.
I’m afraid that it would be hard to solve at the moment.
Is it possible to ask your security administrator to white-list Inkdrop?

Hi Takuya san,

Wish you all the best in 2020!
Thank you for your reply. Yes, I’m on Windows at company. Understood that it’s difficult to solve the issue on the app side and I’ll see other options. Thanks!
