Digital Signature of msi with self made certificate is getting warning on install

Dear all,

I developed an Oultook plugin and code signed it with a self made certificate (generated with SignTool) included through the Addin Express Signature function (Si I assume the adxloader.dll has been signed).
It generates a msi installer but my customer is still getting a warning while installing it as the MSI is not trusted...Do I need to purchase an official Digital Signature to avoid such warning during installation ?

Thanks,
Franck.

Hello Franck,

Yes. This is the case: a self-made certificate can only be used for testing it on your machine.
