Unknown publisher in power user

Hi all,

I developed application in C# to be used in Vista. I used manifest so
power user or any other user beside administrator can run.
The problem is that the power user gets message that the application
was developed by unknown publisher.
I created test certificate and ran it in administrator and power user.

In administrator I don't get the "unknown publisher" any more, while
in the power user I do + I need to add the admin's password.

Was I doing anything wrong? am I missing something? If I certificate
my app using MS and verisign, will it solve the problem?

Note that I am getting in admin user prompt which asks me if I want to
run the application. why do I get this is I used test certificate?

Thanks for the help.

Yes, you will have to sign your application with a certificate:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...66(VS.80).aspx

In the project properties, you can point to the file and voila: done.

Thanks,
