First, I am not using any ClickOnce technology that I am aware of ;)

For a third-party VSTO 2005 SE plug-in for Outlook, what should I sign

with a publisher's certificate versus an internally generated test

certificate? Which of the following do I sign with the publisher

certificate?

1) the plugin application manifest generated by VS 2008

2) the plug-in's installer .msi file that I've created with an

InstallShield like product

3) the plug-in's installer setup.exe file that I've created with an

InstallShield like product

4) plug-in's main assembly .dll file

5) anything else?

1: No, manifest files can't be signed.

2, 3, 4: Yes.

5: any dependent assemblies or libraries you've created that will be loaded

by your main assembly.

For a VSTO 2005 SE plug-in for Outlook 2007, is there anyway to set

the "Publisher:" value when from Outlook 2007 the user does

Tools => Trust Center => Add-Ins

and then clicks on my add-in name?

Right now that field is still <None> even though my add-in is signed.

Is the addin signed with a real code signing certificate that traces back to

a certificate authority that's recognized on that computer, or is it

self-generated certificate?

The certificate may need to be installed in the certificates cache, or be

added as a trusted publisher.
