"unknown publisher" under Windows Vista

After building my standalone, which is sort of a launcher app for my  
main installer, and running it under Windows Vista, I get the  
security warning that tells me the publisher for the exe is unknown.  
Anyone know how I can make it "known"? As far as I can tell, I've  
filled in all the pertinent information in the standalone builder,  
but nothing seems to take care of the problem. I noticed that Rev's  
latest installer does not produce this warning, as the publisher  
appears to be "known". I've looked at the properties for my exe and  
for the Rev installer and, as far as I can tell, they've both got the  
same information. Theirs produces the normal "A program needs your  
permissions to continue" dialog, while mean produces a "An  
unidentified program wants access to your computer" dialog.

Anyone run into this? I get this warning with other applications I  
use, mostly those that are older and haven't yet been updated for Vista.
