I got mail yesterday from John Hudson and Christopher Hooker about the Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator and Windows 8:
I have noticed that the installer programs for theBiblical Hebrew keyboards are causing problems inWindows 8. They still work, but one must go throughsome rather dire security warnings to complete the installation, including one place where the option to proceed is hidden. To make this a bit easier, do you have a way of signing the app that would remove warnings?
I so love it when they put the answer and embed it in the question that way! :-)
Anyone can sign the binaries used in a setup program -- in this case the three that can be signed are:
But MSKLC itself does not get in the signing business -- that's between you and your code signing authority (Verisign, maybe?).
If you want the setup to have a security warning that prominently displays your company name, you can sign the files!
It just tells people where the package is coming from, and if they trust you they'll accept it. :-)
They don't have to trust me but the many certificate authorities from the Microsoft Root Certificate program. Like in the past: Diginotar, Türktrust, Comodo, Microsoft...
What the freak is Türktrust doing in there? Like we trust the increasing fundamentalist Arab nations to not take advantage of this to attack us.
