Publisher could not be verified - Windows 2003 server

Posted on 2006-03-21

I have an application that I am running on W2003 server.   When I access it from a workstation, the Security Warning box that advises "The publisher could not be verified..."  also has a check box that I can advise "don't ask again".

However, when I need to access the app on the server itself, the Security Warning screen does not have the checkbox... so I have to click through all the time.  I am scheduling this app to run at specific times... and I will not be there to click through it.

Is there somewhere I can disable this security "feature" for this application?

    The publishers are listed in Internet Option/Content/Publishers - you can change the options by clicking the advanced button under trusted or untrusted publishers.

    you may also do it with GPEDIT.MSC, the Group Policy Editor. under Local Computer Policy/Computer Configuration/Windows Setttings/Security Settings/Public Key Policies/Automatic Certificate Request Settings, add your new policy here with the build-in wizard.

    Found another solution before I got into these.

    If you setup the application to be run from a batch file, windows security ignores it... and the question about publishes never comes up.
