Could someone please tell me a fix for this.

Below is the build process step that errors.

ISDEV : error -1027: Failed signing certificate.msi

Error: TimeStamping Failed. Result = 8009310b, (-2146881269)

Does your build machine lack outgoing access to the Internet? In order to timestamp a signature (so that the signature is valid beyond the certificate's expiration date), it needs a countersigned chunk of data from Verisign.

Hi I was able to sign the msi and exe files on a separate PC without the fire wall.

However I have a base installation and minor upgrade installation. Both of these have settings "Need Administrative Previleges" set to Yes for the complete installation.

I have created a patch upgrade for this minor upgrade and have signed the Update.exe file. This update works fine under administrator logon. But under a normal user or power user logon it comes up with a message telling

"This patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package".

Any idea whats wrong?
