The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?

    Question

  • I have a piece of software that downloads from my web site as a standalone vb.net application. It is a simple link on the web page that lets the user save or run the application. Where do I begin to not get the message "The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?" I am not sure if this will happen differently in different browsers. I am using IE8. What technology do I use inside my application to make it a signed application, or this is even the right track?

    Thank You.

  • You have to sign the assemblies with a Code Signing Certificate, to get one you have to buy it from a certificate authority.

  • Hi Derek,

    Welcome to the MSDN Forum.

    The dailog is a security mechanism. If an excute file is which you want to excute, just run it, it is OK. If not, please don't run, it may be harmful.

    I hope this will be helpful.

    Best regards,
