Trevor Devore has some really good tutorials on code signing. I use a 
Comodo cert for Windows. If you need to sign an OSX built (or iOS) you 
need separate certs (one for OSX and 1 for iOS ) from Apple which I 
think I recall is part of your Apple Developer membership

There are some 3rd party tools people have recommended to point & click 
code signing or use the command line tools from the vendors (Microsoft 
for Window; Apple for OSX - part of xCode)

You build your LC standalone. Sign that. Then package that in an 
installer and sign the installer (best practice)

There s a learning curve, but code signing really is a necessity these days.
