New hMailServer x 64 MSI Installer

Post by Dravion » 2018-10-18 07:25

Due to Problems in recent version of InnoSetup regarding Maleware false positive or Maleware contamination, i decided to replace the entire thing and
created a complete new Installer for hMailServer 5.6.8 x64 from scratch as Windows Installer Package (MSI).

Now Virustotal scan results looking good
See scanresults:

Relasenotes:
https://github.com/Dravion/hmailserver/ ... /tag/5.6.8

hMailServer 5.6.8 64-Bi MSI-Installer (tested with Win7 x64 and higher)
https://github.com/Dravion/hmailserver/ ... 31-x64.msi

Hint:
This Installer needs the .NET 4 Framework installed or the Installer will quit with a Warning.
You can download and install .NET 4 if you dont allready have a newer version allready installed

If you want to use MS-SQL CE x64 Bit you need to Download and install it first

ps: You wont be asked to setup a password, the Password is simply not set, so just click ok on the hMailAdmin login Dialog
and setup a new Password in hMailAdmin Password settings.

You notice from the post above that Dravion has two builds, one with OpenSSL and one with LibreSSL

Dravion is certainly keen to change from OpenSSL to LibreSSL, that's why both are offered...
Just 'cause I link to a page and say little else doesn't mean I am not being nice.

Thats correct @mattg :D

But its really not a Vodoo trick,because LibreSSL
is a Fork of OpenSSL 1.0.2.x which hMailServer uses normally.

The main reason why i focus on LibreSSL is because OpenSSL 1.0.2.x has reached EOL and there will be no security Updates after December 2019.

On the other Hand OpenSSL 1.1.x (which is the new upgrade of OpenSSL) is incompatible to hMailServers existing Codebase and would require
a require a rewrite of portions of hMailserver code.

Its just trick to stay uptodate with a supported security lib for hMailServer.
