.MSI name should be changed


When you install .NET Bio it invokes the installer and then under Win7 you are prompted with the question
"Do you want the following program to install software on this computer?"

The program name is listed as : e7c310a.msi

It is the right program and works fine, however a new user may be put off by the name of that .msi. If this can be changed to say .NET Bio installer.msi or something like that I think it would be more user friendly and accurate.

I am assigning this to Rick, the problem is when the final package is signed, the name isn't being supplied.

To fix this, use the /d command line argument with the required program name when executing signtool to sign the msi. It appears that the windows installer creates a temporary copy of the msi file and assigns it a generated name before running it. If you don't use /d with signtool, you get to see the temporary filename it generated.

The signing software is on Simon's PC and therefore needs to be done by him. This should be done once we have the final installer and it's ready to be signed. As noted this is a lo pri issue but easily addressed when doing the signing.

This was NOT addressed in version 1.10. Outercurve does NOT use signtool at this time and the ability to name the .msi when signing it was not available using their current technology. This issue will exist until that is a supported feature when signing.

Moving this to unassigned until such time as it can be addressd and have someone do that.

Closing this as we are not going to distribute an msi going forward.
