Hello

Im having problems with code signing, 1st "File Download - Security Warning" on run of setup.exe, 2nd "Internet Explorer -
Security Warning" (pic below) i'll supply all my details and pics below and hope someone can help with why this is not working, i
think it could have something to do with the type of certificate on registration, but im new to this.

OK
I go here for free Digital Certificate from trusted root publisher, you need to register first.
http://www.ascertia.com/onlineCA/Issuer/CerIssue.aspx

This is what kind of certificate i choose (below pic), i have tried some of the other types as well.
Microsoft Base Cryptographic provider
Microsoft Enhanced cryptographic provider
Microsoft Strong Cryptographic provider
More types with details listed here

Now i copy it all and save it lets say Some-Certificate.pb7 then click on it and install the certificate to below pic

Ok

I then export the certificate with the private keys, and have selected ticked box for "Include all certificates in the certificate path if possible" & "Enable strong protection(requires IE 5.0, NT 4.0 SP4 or above". Then choose a password, some-file-name.pfx. Then select my cert in vs 2005 (Select from Store) like below and then "Select from File" and choose file some-file-name.pfx.

On my machine it runs all soothly since my pc has the certificates, but any other users down loading it off the web all get the
same security warning before install, there are other publishers that you don't get this warning it smoothly installs, no
warnings, any kind of suggestions would really be appreciated, please not to technical, im a noob at this. :D
