Digital certificate signature on windows applications?

P: 84
Hi Guys,
Hopefully this should be a simple question.

We have some executables which we developed but when we run it over the network it shows us a security on windows xp asking if we are sure we want to run.

Ideally we would like to not have these warning message and to my understanding [please correct me if i am wrong], we need a digital certificate to sign our executables.

1. Now being a layman in this area, I am clueless on how to sign our executables?
2. I am already using snk key to sign our application and run caspol command to register it - would i need to change it?

Can someone please explain to me in simple newbie terms what i would need to do and how to proceed? I know that our sister company has a digital certificate which we are allowed to use but i am not sure how to use it. These are in .pfx file, .pvk and one .spc file.

Any help would be highly appreciated.....

You can sign assembly using Signcode.exe
For testing purpose you could use Makecert.exe
