View Full Version : Unknown Publisher

03-06-2007, 11:32 PM
I use the Single image build option. I have entered my Credential File and successfully signed the setup.exe file that is generated. However, on Windows Vista you still get an unknown publisher error when the MSI is extracted and told to run. I assume I need to sign the MSI in addition to the setup.exe but how can I sign the MSI from InstallShield Express 12?

I do not see any options to sign the MSI nor do I know how to sign it manually before it is compressed and included in the setup.exe file. Can someone tell me how to sign the MSI file?

You must put the setup.exe under a home page for download

now if a user download your app Internet explorer will generate a key
and put it on the users certificates , now if the user start the program
it will check it with your private key and if ok it will be signed
and run without problem
