When bundling my application, I can give the application a
name which appears in the application installer, but I can't seem
to set the "Publisher" field. I thought it should use the
"Publisher Name" from the digital signature I created, but no luck
there either. Is it possible to change this field ?
The publisher name is indeed taken from the certificate used
to sign the application. However, it will only be displayed if the
signing certificate is considered trusted. In general, only
certificates issued by certification authorities (such as Thawte)
are considered trusted.
Have fun getting a certificate. It was quite an interesting
"first" experience for us. We do them all the time for client's
websites. This one is a little trickier and requires the client to
be involved in the process.
