    hi all,
    I made a demo project in VS2005 just for to check vista compatibility. And i did really well. But whenever i run my exe each time the dialog box of vista comes infront of me"AN Unidentified Program wants to access...". As it doesnt ask when i run that from user mode. But i wanted to give that the consent.:rolleyes:
    then after a long search i came to no tat it needs the digital signature for that. and i think a code signing certificate from somewhere. I dont want to purchase as i only need for the test purpose.

    If some one can tell me how to give the consent to my program and the procedure to digitally sign exe.



    Thanx in advance.....
