We are developing an extension for IE9. When clicking on 'Manage Add-ons' in IE (9), our add-in is listed without a Publisher name in the table. If we double-click to open the information window, the version number from adxloader.dll is displayed. How can we set the company name and version without modifying the resources stored in adxloader.dll?

To change the Publisher name you need to sign the loader with your own digital signature.
The current version of the product doesn't support changing the loader version automatically. So you will have to modify the resources stored in the loader.

Hi Sergey,

Signing the loader solved the missing Publisher problem.

Being able to set the version number easily would be nice, but this is not a major issue.

(Setting the Publisher field is more important as some anti-virus use it to display warning messages. The user might be scared to learn that a component from an 'unknown publisher' has been installed.)

Thank you for your help.
