How can I Create a digital signature for my Visual Basic application
Posted on 2006-06-27
Note: since my original question put in to the sercurity area did not get answered so far, I am listing it here as well.
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 )
