Using Easy Code Signing with Wix Bootstrapper

Using Easy Code Signing With Wix Bootstrapper

You can use Easy Code Signing to sign a bootstrapper exe. You might be running into your setup refusing to install because of a 8007000 error. This is because the Wix bootstrapper has a file inside its bootstrapper exe that are not signed. You need to extract the file and sign it.

You do this with these commands after you build your bootstrapper.

insignia -ib "[pathtoyourinstaller.exe]" -o engine.exe

ecs "/p:[pathtoyourinstaller.exe]"

insignia -ab engine.exe "[pathtoyourinstaller.exe]"  -o "[pathtoyourinstaller.exe]"

ecs "/p:[pathtoyourinstaller.exe]"
