Code signing and SmartScreen RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Evening,

    I have a small, non-commercial application signed with a standard code signing certificate (I can't afford an EV certificate). Are there any guidelines for passing Windows Smart Scren ? I am signing using SHA-256. I read that if you don't have an EV, a reputation needs to be established. Is there a particular number of downloads and installs performed, in order to establish the eputation ?

  • Hi,

    Please see: Microsoft SmartScreen & Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing Certificates

    "Windows 8 applications are not in scope for SmartScreen Application Reputation checks or warnings – these
    apps are reviewed, code signed, licensed & distributed by the Windows store directly."

    Is your app winrt app or desktop app?
