The warning is usually displayed when the application is not digitally signed by Verisign or other providers.

You'd start by getting a certificate from someone like Verisign and use their certificate to sign your assembly.

You may be able to do a self-signed assembly using the information from these pages:




I'd recommnd reading up and going from there.
