Uninstaller not being signed on Windows

Running IA2015 SP1 Premier on Windows 7, I've set the the project options to digitally sign the installer and this works fine.

However the uninstaller is not being signed - is there a separate control for this that I've missed ?
The only thing I've modified for this on the Sequence/Install page is to rename it to "Modify $PRODUCT_NAME$ Installation".

Sign unsintaller

You are in luck. I asked support about this just yesterday Smiley Happy

http://flexeracommunity.force.com/customer/articles/en_US/HOWTO/Q211494

There are 6 .exe that need to be signed themselves, and kept in the InstallAnywhere instance building the installer. When you build the installer, these .exe will ensure that the uninstaller is singed.

I haven't tested yet, but it's from Flexera support, so....

Still not signed when maintenance mode enabled

Thanks for the suggestion, but I still see the same unsigned exe warning message from Windows.

The problem is with the maintenance mode exe, i.e. the one that offers the repair/uninstall add/remove features selection.

Error from Windows signtool

In fact if I try to sign the "Change PRODUCT Installation.exe" file that is produced by the installer I get:

SignTool Error: SignedCode:Smiley Frustratedign returned error: 0x800700C1
%1 is not a valid Win32 application.

which I guess explains why the installer isn't managing to sign it either !

( this is using the Windows signtool )

Hi

We couldn't face any issues as such. It would be good if you could provide more details on the project configuration .

Re: Uninstaller not being signed on Windows

It appears that the problem is related to selecting a different icon for the uninstaller in the Create Uninstaller action.
If I change this back to using the default icon then the built uninstaller is signed correctly.
