Issue Details

When trying to build an installer for my program I get the following message:

CodeSignAPI.lvlib:Get Signing Error String.vi<ERR> 
Error: The Timestamp Authority URL specified does not point to a valid Timestamp Authority server, or an unknown error occurred. 
<b>Complete call chain:</b> 
CodeSignAPI.lvlib:Get Signing Error String.vi 
CodeSignAPI.lvlib:Sign with Certificate.vi 
IB_MSI.lvclass:Sign_Setup.vi 
IB_MSI.lvclass:Build.vi 
CDK_Engine_Main.vi 
CDK_Build_Invoke.vi 
CDK_Build_Invoke.vi.ProxyCaller 

The installer was able to build before, what could be causing this issue?

Solution

Under 'Application Properties' in the Application Builder navigate to 'Windows Security' and uncheck 'Apply Digital Signature'. This property is not selected by default.


Additional Information

If you require a digital signature, ensure that you're following the steps listed in User Account Control, Digital Signing, and Manifests in LabVIEW Built Applications.
