What’s MSMPISETUP.EXE (Azure-Compute-MSMPI master (1ce46e0) Microsoft MPI Setup)? Is it safe or a virus?

MSMPISETUP.EXE is a file associated with Microsoft Message Passing Interface (MS-MPI) setup.

Microsoft MPI (MS-MPI) is Microsoft's version of the Message Passing Interface standard, made for the creation and operation of parallel applications within the Windows environment.

The Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard is important for the high-performance computing (HPC) sector, providing a framework for communication among processes that perform cooperative operations on various parts of data in parallel.

This model is pivotal for applications that require processing large datasets or solving complex computational problems across multiple processors in a computing cluster. MPI supports scalability, allowing systems to leverage increasing numbers of processors efficiently.

The standard defines a comprehensive set of operations for point-to-point and collective communication among processes, enabling a wide range of parallel computing architectures and applications. MPI's portability and flexibility make it a preferred choice for developers in scientific research, engineering, and other fields requiring intensive computational capabilities.

What does it mean if someone is the publisher of a PC .exe (executable or process)?

The publisher of an executable is the entity responsible for its distribution and authenticity. Most processes/executables on your PC should be signed. The signature on the executable should have been verified through a third party whose job it is to make sure the entity is who it says it is. Find an unsigned executable? You should consider scanning any completely unsigned .exe on your PC.
