Signing ClickOnce Manifest

I am trying to deploy an application using ClickOnce. Everything is working
fine except one thing. During the initial install the user is prompted to
install the application from an "unknown publisher".

My assumption is that this happens because I've signed my ClickOnce manifest
with a temporary key, thus causing the client to not trust the application.

Since we use Active Directory (2003), I would think that I could get a
certificate from our Certificate Authority that I could use to sign the
manifest and have it trusted by all the computers on our domain. (This
application is totally internal.)Howev er, I am not an Active Directory expert
so I don't even know what to ask our SysAdmins for.

Any help getting me in the right direction would be appreciated.

I am trying to understand the difference between signing ClickOnce manifests and signing shared assemblies. My company is building .Net 2005 WinForm applications for internal company use only. Currently, the ClickOnce security settings on the applications is set for "Full Trust". We are using shared assemblies across development groups, but none of these assemblies are signed with strong names since signing assemblies is only required when...

I have a SmartClient/ClickOnce app that needs to be deployed to a whole bunch of sites. The app.config would have to be different for each site. I am trying to do this in an automated manner (by calling MSBuild). So MSBuild builds and publishes the app - in the process it takes all the files and creates a hash. The problem is that the hash would be different for every site (since app.config is different). Is there a utility (or an...

Hello, I would like to use ClickOne but we need to stagger our update process. Currently we are shipping cd's when it is time for an update. We stagger the release in waves of 250 each so our clients do not overwhelm our support staff with loading questions and new feature questions. ClickOnce will elininate the CD cost and the loading questions but that still does not take care of the calls for new feature questions. I would like to...

Hi, We have developed a VSTO 2005 Excel application and we would like to leverage ClickOnce deployment mechanism for distribution of this application. How can we do that?

Anybody use Strong Name Signing? I think this is used by default for Resource files, which is one reason perhaps I can't get my resource files to work (somehow the public key is messed up, perhaps since I've installed so many versions of Visual Studio) RL http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/h4fa028b.aspx Deployment in Visual Studio

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
