Please sign NuGet Package Explorer ClickOnce

Mar 9, 2011 at 1:50 PM

I'm unable to launch the NuGet Package Explorer due to local security settings -- ClickOnce apps need to be signed.  As NuGet itself is code signed, can the package explorer please be too?

I understand your pain point. I've been waiting for Outercurve to provide me with the certificate but haven't heard back from them. I will consider signing it with my own certificate. Stay tuned.

This is still a problem, corp. IE settings do't allow this clickonce to run.

Sorry, I won't be able to sign it.

I've uploaded the executable at the NPE site: You can download the "Local executable" ZIP file and runs locally. It works exactly the same as the ClickOnce version. You'll only lose the auto-update functionality.

No chance of getting a cheap code-signing certificate?  You can get one for $60 for 2 years and unlimited certificates:

I'll look into that.
