Hi ieciep,

I had the same problem, this info on the Thawte site worked for me:

*********************************************************************
Before following any of instructions below, first go to the following link and download the zip file containing all the Thawte Root Certificates:
http://www.thawte.com/roots/index.html

Once downloaded extract the "Thawte Code Signing CA" Intermediate certificate, then right click the .cer file and choose "Install Certificate" to install it the local machine. This certificate needs to be installed on the machine used for code signing as it is needed in the code signing process.
