What cert and publisher is required to sign a windows 8 app for side loading?


  • I have a windows 8 app that I've already deployed to the store. Now I want to also install it using side loading. I understand I need to sign it with a cert but I am not sure what exactly I need to get. Is it a code signing cert? The doco also says the publisher in the package manifest also needs to match the publisher in the cert. Since I have deployed to the store the publisher in the package manifest is a GUID that is my publisher id in the store. Do I and can I get a cert with this as the publisher?
