    Hello!

    The publisher you mentioned, "Microsoft Windows Software Compatibility Publisher," is totally legit and has ties with Microsoft. Basically, they make sure the software works with Windows. But just to clarify, the hash value you gave, "6e9d0bc0906efe5fc5502837b60ebfe6," doesn't really tell us if the publisher is trustworthy. Hash values are just used for verification purposes.

    Hope that helps!
