I have created my application using Visual Basic 6. Now the app needs to be able to run on a Windows 2003 server , using remote descktop.

when users try to run it, windows pops up a message called "open file ...." and users need to click yes to make it run. I assume if I attach a digital signature with my application , then this message will not pop-up.

Question1: is my assumption correct ?

Question2: if so how can I create a digital signature for my appliction, all I need is to stop that message comming up. I do not however want to change the security policy of the server. Is there a way ( may be with windows itself ) that I can create a Digital signature free?
Or is there a workaround without having to go about the digital signature business at all ? ( again no change to server security policies )

Thanks,
Indika.

You are talking about getting a digital certificate for code-signing. This is a class 3 (issues code signing and object signing certificates) digital certificate. The cost last I checked is $34.95 for a year.
