Hello

We have application in vb 6.0. When user download application from server and run application at that time it will show warning for unknown publisher. We want to add publisher Name into vb 6.0 exe.

Also One more thing Our application is related to download manager. Using our exe we will execute silent exe of our publisher.

Once User agree with terms and condition  it will execute publisher exe. But in the window vista operating system ask for permission. we need to by pass os permission using vb6.0 exe.

Can you please help me solve out this issue?

Thanks

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

Check this- http://www.verisign.com/products-services/security-services/code-signing/index.html

Yes.

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.


Thanks,
