Application Publisher RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have made my application for depolyment on vista, I have made the UAC ask for permission, but in the "publisher" field that pops up how can i get it to say my name or something.

    I'm guessing you have to do this using a manifest or is it just the assembly information, if it is i can't find it.



    Many Thanks,

  • It seems you did not digitally sign your installer.

    For Windows Vista UAC questions ask in a UAC related community such as the   microsoft.public.windows.vista.general or microsoft.public.windows.vista.security newsgroups. This forum is for C#.

  • You should sign your assembly because otherwise by default you will get a yellow-orange dialog warning you that the application is not signed.  However, if you want a meaningful name to appear in the application details, you need to embed a manifest in the application.  Take a look at my www.codeplex.com/UACHelpers.
