Verified Publisher

Recommended Posts

Dear Rudy,

I'm sorry for unexpected delay!

I guess you mean the message "Unknown Publisher" that is displayed by Windows before the installation. Windows uses its own algorithm to verify the executable file by so-called Digital Signature. The developer can use the utilities like SignTool.exe and SignCode.exe to sign files. These utilities attach the special data to executables to provide Windows the necessary information to verify the publisher. 

You can find more information about Digital Signature, for example, on http://msdn.microsoft.com.

Did that answer you question?

Best regards,

Alex

Normally, when you look at the setup.exe file's properties, you will see the data fields filled,

such as publisher, copyright, version and etc. But the file created by your installer does not

fill in these fields.

Could you guys please add that in the next release? It's annoying to see Windows popup

the "Unknown Publisher" message everytime the program is installed.

Thanks

Ted
