EV code signing certificate sectigo with InstallShield 2020

I use express InstallShield 2020
I have an EV code signing certificate that I want to sign with the msi files and the exe file
Is it doable? I did not find any explanation and it is very urgent for me

Yes you can sign using EV certificate,

First you need to import the certificate to trusted root location of your machine, Please refer below KB for importing to trusted root location:

You can also use mmc to import certificate:


Once you import the certificate to trusted root, then using installshield signing tab select the imported certificate using the "certificate selection dialog" Please refer attached screenshot named "Certificate selection Dialog" (Please certificate certificate details properly)

Then try to build your project and see it will sign your installer, If you face any issue, then try to check below registry path in your build machine

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/Cryptography/Providers/SafeNet Smart Card Key Storage Provider/Aliases

The value should be "eToken Base Cryptographic Provider" and not "eToken Base Cryctographic Provider" ('p' instead of 'c').

Hope it helps
