Code signing error

Guest

My setup.msi file loaded fine. The I code signed the app, dlls, exes with
Verisign certs and now I get Error in Windows CE Setup Files. Application
manager cannot install this app on your mobile device due to an error in the
Setup File. Reinstall and try again. I contacted Verisign. We loaded just
the signed exe and the device was okay with the certificate. Verisign
suggests I contact Microsoft. I found the M2M web address but no answer yet.
Are there any other resources for resolving. I'm not even sure how to
troubleshoot this issue. And certs aren't cheap to just try again. Any
suggestions are appreciated.

First of all those certs (M2M) Verisign etc is just a money making scam and
waste of money. You might as well create your own certs using makecert.exe.

Secondly, signing your code should not cause any issues installing the code
as the checking doesn't occur until the code is actually run. Does your
installer contain a custom dll?

Have you tried installing without signing? Have you tinkered with the .inf
file?

Simon, thanks for the reply. Yeah, the code ran in debug. I went to
release, signed, and now I'm dead in the water. The installer has a
custominstaller.dll, yes.
