unknown publisher on client pc, when installing our tool.

I purchased remote support software. It allows me to build a "call-back" tool which is to be downloaded from my Private IT support-site by the client and run on their machine.

As they finish the download and run the program.

They get "publisher Unknown".
I am very interested in providing any information necessary for this software to be recognized by Microsoft or Internet Explorer, etc...

I saw some Digital ID's.  however, it is not clear how to attach an ID to my EXE file.

Solution?

Remote Support System 1.6 / info at www.download.com

Their exe file that it creates for you has the "publisher unknown".
[Somehow their exe does not inherit the Publisher-ID]

Also emailing them with this concern.

I may have to get my own Authenticode for exe's.

It looks like you are running into an authenticode issue ... you are distributing executable code that is unverifiable by the end user as being safe to run.
Check out http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/security/authcode/intro_authenticode.asp
Look between the middle and bottom of the page (about 2/3 of the way down) for "Obtaining Certification"
Since you are packaging your code and distributing it I would expect that you can sign the installer app also (not sure on this) which would get rid of these problems, if you have a valid certificate you are signing with.
