MS-Office and "Always trust macros from this publisher" with a renewal certificate
Posted on 2011-02-14
My digital certificate just expired so I got a new one (a "renewal", but it's not really a renewal). The publisher name and all information is exactly what it was before.
Users of my Excel add-in are having to check "Always trust macros from this publisher" again, even though they had the previously signed (and trusted) macro installed. Am I correct in assuming that Office doesn't really track the publisher, but the whole certificate?
If that assumption is correct, does anyone know a way to get a certificate issued that would be in keeping with the already trusted publisher on file?
