Digitally sign dll?


The instructions below are to digitally sign certificates but require you to purchase the certs online. Is there a way I can self sign a dll? The goal is to get that digital certificate tab to show so I can use a publisher rule within AppLocker

Thanks n2fc, we can't download at work and we run Win7 ;( but maybe I'll download at home and burn

Attempted to download SDK but  just worked around  it by creating path rules/hashes. Sometimes would have to use powershell commands to auto create and import the rules which works fine
