In some versions of Windows you will get an Unknown Publisher error when downloading from the Internet an unsigned executable. You will need to get a certificate and then sign the executables to remove this warning.

Some background links:

(For Windows 7)

You can automate the signing of the executables in the postBuildActionList. In general, Windows is required, but it is possible to use Mono on Unix systems to do the signing as it also includes a signcode utility. http://www.go-mono.com
