Changing content of a signed .exe
Posted on 2011-03-08
We build our product from C and Asm source files, and ship all our .exe and .dll files signed with Authenticode. In the past (before we starting signing our files), our customers could use a tool like ResHacker or Resource Tuner to change the app icon -- the icon that shows in Windows Explorer for an .exe file -- to something they like better than our icon.
The question now is how to support this capability in Authenticode signed file? Or is it simply impossible?
