I have a web page - in that i give a link to exe file. When the user clicks on the link the exe is supposed to be downloaded and executed in the user's system. (I am not writing any malicious code or virus :rolleyes: )
However, when i try to download that executable a messagebox with prompts as follows:
Title: File Download - Security Warning
Buttons: [Run] [Save] [Cancel]
While files from internet can be useful, this file type can potentially harm your computer. If you do not trust the source, do not run or save this software. (link: ) What's the risk?
I don't want to display this messagebox. I got the information like, I need to "Digitally sign" my executable - so that the user can trust the Digital Certificate and its publisher. I am ready to buy any digital certificate from any CA such as Verisign etc. Anyway, Before that to make sure, I tried with sample certificates generated using "makecert.exe" and "cert2spc.exe" and other tools. They have mentioned like these sample certificates work in intranet. However, still the warning pops up. I am not able to stop that. This happens only in the Windows XP - SP 2 systems.
Few other links i found to create sample digital certificates:
I don't know what I am doing wrong. All I want is to get rid of that warning.
I hope Daniweb can help me in this regard.
