Define the publisher information.


ImportantWhen selecting a certificate in the Digital signature page, Advanced Installer will try to extract the Subject and store it internally. For MSIX packages with sideloading distribution type, at build time, Advanced Installer will try to synchronize the Publisher ID with this cached Subject. If the cached Subject is empty, the Publisher ID from the manifest (displayed in the Package Information view) will be used instead.

This field will be used for all Microsoft Store MSIX builds and for the Sideloading ones as well, in case the cached subject is empty.

To learn more about the Publisher ID, check out the How to correctly set the Publisher ID for a UWP AppX article.
