Do I really need to buy a certificated to sign my application, in order to ship it to user? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When I am going to ship my application to users, do I really need to buy a certificate and sign it? In order that users can install it in the phone and use it, and that is a small application.

    Please advise.

  • If you publish your app in the Windows Phone Marketplace, the answer is no
    See http://developer.windowsphone.com/Help.aspx section "Testing Your App".

  • Hi stephen88,

    In addition to Michael's reply, if not via Windows Phone Marketplace, we have to buy m2m certificate. For more information:
