i used Jeff Wilcox' SignExtension tool to sign my VSIX:
Installing in VS works as expected, the certificate is accepted and displayed correctly.
When I try to upload it to VS Gallery I get the message "Invalid Certificate in VSIX"
The authenticode cert is from Go Daddy. You can look at the certificate if you download it via the provided link (from codeplex)
What did I do wrong? Is there a problem with the certificate or the tool?

Btw, anyone who wants to look at the package and does not have privileges to view unpublished gallery items, here's the direct download link:

Hey, I'm trying to contribute something here, maybe someone from MSFT can help me out?!
Maybe the upload server does not have the same root certificates installed as a normal windows machines? If so, this should be fixed. Because I don't see myself throwing away my GoDaddy cert and pay $500/yr to versign just so I prevent this upload error.
I published it now with a link instead of an upload, but I'd really prefer to switch to upload so installation would work from inside VS. Please give me a heads up if this situation changes!

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I am a developer on the VS Gallery team and I looked into your issue. It does look like we were missing the GoDaddy cert on our servers. We corrected this and I would like for you to try again and see if that solves your issue.
