I have a VBS script that prepares a client workstation for the cloud-based service I'm getting ready to launch. Customers will download it and run it from our web site.

My plan is to put the script and other files in a self-extractor, but I'll need to sign the self-extractor. Already have an Authenticode cert from my VBA work, but I need a utility to do the signing.

My web searches haven't turned up anything to do this except solutions that either aren't available or won't work on modern OS's; CAPICOM & CODESIGN.EXE.

How will you bypass the disabling of VBS which many corporates enforce? You'd be better off building a proper EXE or your development tool's native "install for web" facility.

The customers are microbusinesses running their own computers. If they had corporate IT, they wouldn't be my customers.

The "development tool" is Notepad++. It is a VBS script.

So...suggestions on how to sign a self-extracting .exe?
