Unknown Publisher

Postby lucid.dion@gmail.com » Fri Dec 01, 2017 7:09 pm

Hi ... I sign my setup.exe with a recently obtained sha256 code signing certificate from Symantec, and when I examine the EXE and look at the Digital Signatures tab it is signed. However, when I attempt to run the downloaded setup, SmartScreen reports Unknown Publisher. Any ideas???

Follow up, I went ahead and purchased us an EV code signing cert, as I read it automatically gives you reputation with SmartScreen. Hopefully the new EV cert will resolve the issue. Any thoughts?

Hello and welcome to our forums,

Indeed, this behavior should disappear as soon as your setup package reaches a reputation.

If you have any questions let us know.

All the best,
