Hi,

 

Please add certificate signing tool in the MSIX packaging to create a certificate instead of the current command line signing...

 

Thanks,

Jassim

Hi Jassim,

 

Are you looking for something similar to this functionality?

 

The free Express edition of Advanced Installer contains this support.

We offer signtool.exe with the MSIX Packaging Tool for signing.  If you need to create a certificate purely for testing purposes (not recommended for distribution), there are built-in cmdlets.

I am talking about a certificate for distribution but what I am requesting is a UI interface not a command line so the packaging wizard should take care of the certificate instead of asking the developer to use cmd for

Microsoft is bringing UWP for a rich user experience then why it can’t also be easier for developer

Thanks for you feedback.  You can add an item to the ideas section if you feel passionate it needs to exist as a UX construct.  We really do not like to promote self-signed certificates and at this time intend to leave it to PowerShell if it is needed.

 

John.
