When we install our app on XP and we see a message that says:
"The Publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?"

How do we get our application signed so that this message no longer appears?


To digitally sign your application, use the Digital Signature page in Installation Expert. In order to successfully add a digital signature, you must have a valid VeriSign commercial certificate, TimeStamp URL, Credentials File and Private Key File.

For information about digital signatures, visit the VeriSign Web site at www.verisign.com and search for "authenticode."
