Visual Studio publisher Cert. Domain Controller?

Im a vb.net developer. My company has a domain controller on premisis, is it at all possible for me to get a certificate from this domain controller that will sign my projects? This way the end user gets a green light instead of a red and thus preventing the numerous phone calls i get when i publish updates to the application.
Im using Visual Studio 2010, and Windows Server 2008. We have an active directory setup so it should be easy enough to get the cert out to everyone.

My attempts to do this result in a cert but when i go to install it to the personal certs or into the automatic file it wont / cant be picked up by Visual Studio.

Unfortunently the links provided did not work. I did how ever figure out a way. Under my ca i had to go an install a new certificate template for code signing. Once ive done that i went to the web based cert request site that was setup when i installed the Ca and requested one there. (IE only) The path: Request a Certificate-> Advanced Certificate Request -> Create and Submit a request to this CA -> { most of the values are fine here. I enabled strong private key protection, and i changed over to the PKCS10 everything else was correct}-> submit and i got the key for myself :)

I then went into Visual studio 2010, and added the certificate from Project Options->Signing->Select From Store. i selected my rootCA1 one from there :) ON the client side it works Flawlesly, just a yellow shield, but im fine with that. Case closed

I didnt go though a total outlining on setting up everything. But with my current setup, this route works.
