Sign Tool Reporting an error when trying to deploy aplication

    Question

  • Hi

     

    i have made a project in Visual Studio 2005 now when i try and publish my application i get the following error message

     

     

     

     

    "

    Error 2 SignTool reported an error 'Failed to sign bin\Debug\Odeon Till Managment System.publish\\setup.exe. SignTool Error: ISignedCode:Tongue Tiedign returned error: 0x80880253

     The signer's certificate is not valid for signing.

    SignTool Error: An error occurred while attempting to sign: bin\Debug\Odeon Till Managment System.publish\\setup.exe

    '. Odeon Till Managment System

    "

     

    This is very weir, the application works fine in debug mode but i obviously want to be able to deploy it.

     

    Any help that anyone can offer me would be greatly appreciated

  • Hi.

     

    Could your situation be the same as mine? My certificate has expired. What I now have to do is set the date on the deployment-machine back to a date prior to the date which my certificate expires.

     

    Surely MS must fix this so we can contiune deploying the "same" application instead of creating a "new" one with another certificate.

     

    Anybody as MS working on this?

     

     

    Cheers

  • Reply to self: How about doing a bit more googling prior to answering a question!!!

     

     

    Apparantly MS have created a workaround to this problem. Check out kb925521 at this link:

    This workaround (methold 2) did the trick for me.

  • Stefan, I've compiled the C++ program, but I'm not sure how to update the expired cert.  How was this cert created in the first place?  On my machine it's listed as S2\ton-de.ron.  Does Visual Studio create this when you first install it?  Mine expired basically right after I installed VS2005.  Thanks for any help.  Regards, Casey
