I want to get rid of the 'unknown publisher' information in the Installing messagebox.
I can read in other issues that you need to purchase a certificate. I want to create my own certificate: my applications are not published to unknown users, they are used in a dedicated network.
There is a lot of information about this topic, but where can I find a 'step-by-step' to:
1) create certificate
2) sign application
3) publish application
This is not Proper Forum for your Question. you may post your question in Deployment forum.
but you can try below steps.
Step 1 : Create your Certificate / Purchase Certificate.
Step 2: Add this Certificate in your Project
Right Click on Your Project => Properties => Signing =>
There is Two Option Sign ClickOnce Manifests, Sign the Assembly
add your certificate above both Option
Step 3: Save Project and Rebuild, if you are using other assembly in your project that assembly also required to sign.
Step 4: Publish your project.

Yes Olivia, I've read but I can't understand...
Why do you need to buy a certificate to deploy your software? If the software is used in an intranet network on a dedicated server, I can't see any reason for that why you need a purchased certificate. It would be different if the software is available on the internet.
The annoying thing is that the publisher name is 'unknown publisher' unless you buy a certificate... So it's just a commercial thing!
Not Required to Sign any Application. It's depend you and your Clients.
I suggest your to ask deep questio in Deployment Forum.
