ClickOnce Install - Shortcut Question

I have a vb.net application that I will be deploying to my clients.  First question is, I have an .exe file which creates the desktop shortcut for, however I also have a .pdf file (Instructions on how to use the application) which I want a shortcut on the desktop as well.  How do I get that shortcut for the .pdf file?

Second, I need guidance for the Signing portion of the clickonce.  When it's signed by a Test Certificate it gives me the 'unsafe' warning.  Any tutorials that I can read so I can get a signed correctly so this doesn't happen?

There is an option within the Installation Wizard that enable you to do this. Did you create an Installation Wizard for your app?

Not quite sure what you mean.  When I use the publishing wizard it doesn't give me the option to allow shortcuts for other files in my app.

Well I think that means you didn't create Install Wizard. You other option would be make a way of differentiating/detect if your application runs for the first time and if it is running for the first time then you can use codes in this post to create a short cut for your additional files.

What I meant at first was a Setup as an Installer Wizard
