Solved!

Hi,

 

I made an installer for my application and filled in all the information of the company. But when I run the installer there comes a pop-up from windows and says Publisher Unknown.

How can I change this? 

 

Thank You!

This is a Microsoft issue. To be more precise: The installer does not include a digital signature.

 

There are little to no options for NI to help.

Norbert_B, that's not true - you can sign your executables and installers with a digital signature and apply that from the Build Specification. It *is* NIs job to allow you to sign the executable/installer with your own certificate.

 

You will need to generate a certificate and install it in Windows, you can then use it to sign you application. For it to appear as 'verified' (green), you need to use a trusted certificate provider (e.g. verisign etc.) to generate the signed certificate - this usually comes with a charge. You can create an un-verified certificate yourself - google it.

You are correct, Sam. My wording was chosen badly.

My point was that NI cannot help you to get the signed certificate beyond the KB you linked (which i heven't seen before....). It is your task to get and apply the signature.

 

thanks for correction and elaboration
