Just to let people know...

I have uploaded a new version (1.3.x) of InfoWallet based on the LiveCode 4.5.3 engine. The Windows executables in this new build are code signed if anyone wants to take a look. This includes the InfoWallet application, shortcut, and installer.

The version of InfoWallet that is downloadable from the web site is still not signed (I plan on making the signed version available in the near future) and I haven't had anyone complain except when Norton flagged it as suspect. Signing it solved that problem immediately.

The process is very difficult, tedious, and time consuming to set up for any of the sources. Once set up as a batch file it is now trivially simple for me to sign apps - just drag and drop.
