Yes. I sign all of my ScreenSteps related desktop applications and  
installers.

I took a lot of notes when I was going through the whole process of  
getting a certificate and figuring out how to sign. I've been meaning  
to post some tutorials on the lessons.runev.com site but I just  
haven't had time to go back and create a coherent tutorial yet.

Once you have all of the proper files on your computer it is pretty  
straightforward to sign an executable each time you build it. It's  
just a matter of calling something like the following on the command  
line in Windows:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2\Bin 
\signtool.exe" sign /f C:\my_code_signing.pfx /t http://timestamp.comodoca.com/authenticode 
  /p YOUR_PFX_PASSWORD "Z:\Path\To\My\Executable\ScreenSteps.exe"

I'll see if I can get something posted by the end of next week the  
explains the process.

That would be incorrect :-)
