remove the "Unknown Publisher" security warning

I publish my App to end users as an Accde file.

How can I make my Accde file trusted to remove the "Unknown Publisher" security warning ?

Thank you

Hi. Just a guess but you'll probably have to register yourself as a (legitimate/certified) publisher, I suppose. Not really sure where or how to do that though. Sorry.

Re: remove the "Unknown Publisher" security warning

Are you distributing your files as ACCDE files or using a professional installer package?
If the latter, you can include script to make the install location trusted. You can also purchase a certificate from Comodo or similar to ensure you are a trusted publisher. Doing that is expensive but it does mean your apps will not show unknown publisher warning messages.

Using self certification will not help overcome this issue.

I'm using Inno Setup to install my App.
I'll look into scripting this.

Yes they do. You'll have to renew them.

Re: remove the "Unknown Publisher" security warning

Are you running the app from a trusted folder? If not, you might want to try that first.

Hi. Sorry, you beat me to it before I was able to add the link above. Please check my previous post again. I edited it to add a link. But just in case, here it is again.
