Sign single image Setup.exe with signtool

Hi,

I am new to installshield and signing code.
I use VS 2015 with InstallShield LE.
With the Installshield I build a Setup.exe as a single image to not have some other files and folders for the prerequsites and the actual software.
After the build is complete, a setup.exe exists.
If I now sign this setup.exe with the signtool from MS and install this setup, the UAC tells me that only the actual software installation is not signed.
It seems to me that there is a msi.exe inside the setup.exe which is not signed.

Is this a fact?
If yes, how can I sign the msi file inside the setup.exe.
If no, what I am doing wrong?
What alternatives do I have?

Here is a screenshot of the UAC:



Thanks for your help.

Have you tried the Signing functionality available in the Releases view?

I am not sure what you are mean with the Release view and the signing functionality there.
Please Note that I am using Installshield LE (Limited Edition) which is free.
Could it be that there is no signing functionality?

Oh f*** :eek:
Thanks a lot 🙂
This is what I searched for! - Many Thanks.
I overlooked Step 6.

Now I have another little problem.
The Icon of the Setup.exe is not the one I entered in (1)Organize your Setup - General Information - Add or Remove Programs - Display Icon.
Isn't it possible to have the own icon in the Setup.exe?

Look at the screenshot from hidenori, look at the arrow .. little bit more left ... switch to tab/register setup.exe. There you can change the icon for setup.exe

I use InstallShield Professional/Premier, there you have this option. Not checked in InstallShield LE. But you can use other free software to replace the icon file later in the setup.exe file.

Sorry, that I have not checked for LE version.

Ah, ok.
My intention was, that I have not to use a resource hacker etc.
Because in this way I have to sign only the msi in VS.
Than I can edit the Icon and at the end I have to sign the setup.exe manually.

But this solution is okay.

I am right that the support ended for Installshield 2009?
- my collegue has a installation on Win XP and tried now to install it on Win 7.
The installation was successfully, but he can not activate it...

Thanks a lot.

Have you tried to ask flexera software support ?

Yes InstallShield 2009 is out of support, but you have a license problem, so I would try to contact flexera software.

The support for specifying your own icon for the Setup.exe file is available in the Premier and Professional editions of InstallShield, but InstallShield LE. If you are interested in the functionality, I recommend that you get your copy of InstallShield Premier Edition Free Trial.
