Hi team,

I saw that MSM support signing: http://helpnet.flexerasoftware.com/installshield19helplib/helplibrary/IHelpReleaseDigitalSignature.htm
I'm trying to address this issue: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/32288.windows-enforcement-of-authenticode-code-signing-and-timestamping.aspx

I'm wondering if MSM files should be signed. When are these signitures used? Are MSM file certificates verified at package buildtime or runtime(when the user installs the package)?

Thank,
