I have both IS6 Professional and IS7 Devleoper installed on my Windows XP box. I have been unable to digitally sign an internet media package. I contacted Verisign about this issue and they said they do not support using Installshield to sign code, and after reviewing the LACK OF RESPONSE in the package for the web community NEITHER DOES INSTALLSHIELD!!!!!

So for those folks who are stuck and can not sign there packages here is the fix. Hopefully Installshield will read this and incoprorate these fixes.

You have to download the IE 5 signcode uility from Microsoft, the signcode.exe porvided by InstallShield is useless on XP. This can be gotten from the following location:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/code/default.asp?url=/code/sample.asp?url=/msdn-files/027/000/219/msdncompositedoc.xml


Extract these files, then double click on signcode.exe. This will launch a GUI from which you will be able to sign your packages. Hope this helps all you folks out there.

Yes, I've successfully used signcode.exe for signing 'exe' single file installs as well, but what about One-Click installs. I've used isign.exe to sign the data1.hdr file on a Windows 2000 machine, but it doesn't work on my XP system. Signcode.exe will not sign the file at all, stating the file cannot be digitally signed.
Anybody any ideas?
