I downloaded Aris Express 2.3 and get the following dialog box when I attempt to run it:

If I check the checkbox to trust the publisher and click run, I receive the following error:

I am running Windows 7 Home Edition SP1 and I have installed the latest version of java, as follows:

I have tried deleting the Java temporary files and reinstalling, but in vain.

How do I resolve the expired certificate issue?

Thank you in advance.

I apologies, my original entry was not posted in it's entirety, so here is the missing information:

The first dialog box:

"Do you want to run this application?  The application's digital signature has expired"

The error dialog box:

"Failed to validate certificate.  The application will not be executed."

Java Version:

Version 7 Update 9

Additional Information:

From the Java Control Panel/security/certificates, there is no Trusted Certificate entry for IDS Scheer AG.

The details of the error message are:

First of all: there is a bug in the new Java version 7, which prevents ARIS Express to start.


If you installed the new version, maybe per automatical update, you need to go back to an older version of Java.

Sorry for any inconveniences. I hope, the new JRE version, where the bug have been fixed, will be released soon.

About the certificate: yes, this is out of date. In the next version, we will use a new certificate (we do not have a time frame for that).

But generally, there is no change in ARIS Express itsself, so, with an outdated certificate or not, you can nevertheless use Express.
