I get the following error message when attempting to Publish my Visual Studio VB application:
- Failed to sign bin\Debug\app.publish\\setup.exe. SignTool Error: No certificates were found that met all of the given criteria.
- Cannot publish because the project failed to build.
I've attempted signing the certificate for the setup.exe and building the project and rebuilding the project. All say they are successful, but the error persists.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bah... nevermind. It was the stupid signing certificate that was expired. The fix is this:

[h=3]To access the Signing page[/h]
  1. With the project node selected in Solution Explorer, from the Project menu, click Properties (or right-click the project node in Solution Explorer, and click Properties).
  2. In the Project Designer, click the Signing tab.

[h=3]To sign application and deployment manifests using a certificate[/h]
  1. On the Signing page, select the Sign the ClickOnce manifests check box.
  2. Click the Select from Store button.
    The Select a Certificate dialog box appears and displays the contents of the Windows certificate store.
