Hi I am new to all this and don't know what's what, I am thinking of going with globalsign as it seems more Australian friendly as I live in Australia, is it much different then Verisign? Is it just as trusted? I seem to be able to navigate globalsign website better and they have an Australian number to call if I need support also am I better getting EV code signing? I feel I will get the EV but just want some opinions before jumping the gun, I have made an installer with wix but found out I need msix so I'm here looking at advance installer and feel this is the way I need to go to future proff any other apps I decided to build in the future any advice would be appreciated,

Thank you,

Scott

Hello Scott and welcome to our forums,

Please note that an EV certificate (Extended Validation) provides instant reputation with Microsoft's SmartScreen.

With that being said, I do not think it matters what vendor you are choosing.
