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.

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.
