Unknown Publisher

BobSherman I have added my name as the Publisher.

When I execute the resulting ebook I'm getting a window titled "Open File - Security Warning".  It indicates:

"The publisher could not be verified.  Are you sure you want to run this software?"

I think this is from Norton Antivirus--but am not certain.

Any suggestions on eliminating this warning?

weblord if you're not sure about it, it might be on nav or your firewall make sure you allow or permit connection of your ebook to outside sources or a website if you have included url(s) on your ebook contents.

EBookCompiler It's a standard IE warning message

The simplest answer is to tell your customers to save it to a known folder, then run it.  That way they don't see the warning.  Probably 99%+ of our users (plus many shareware software authors) simply do this, so your more experienced customers won't be concerned in any case.

Another (more complicated) answer is to authenticode sign the EXE.  This unfortunately doesn't remove the warning, but instead gives a different warning (Do you trust publisher X? Default being no (I think)...which means no download).

Another users is currently investigating the authenticode process (and I hope will get back to me), so hopefully we'll be able to share more detailed info on what's involved (it's non trivial, search for authenticode at microsoft.com ).
