Warning dialog for unsigned MSI

Xamarin.VisualStudio_3.9.340.msi is not digitally signed.


## Steps to reproduce

1. Download the Windows Xamarin 3.9.340 installer.


2. Attempt to run the installer on a Windows system that has warnings about unsigned installers enabled.



## Results

Windows warns that the installer is not digitally signed (see also attached image):

> Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher
> to make changes to this computer?

...

> Publisher: Unknown



If you open the file properties, the "Digital Signatures" tab does _not_ appear (see also the image attached to the next comment). The "Digital Signatures" _does_ appear for signed installers.



## Version info

Window 8.1 64-bit

As per Comment 3 changed to fixed.
Comment 5 Mohit Kheterpal 2015-06-09 07:43:40 UTC
Now the latest XVS i.e. Xamarin.VisualStudio_3.11.646_1c6da0f432fedfb1458610ebf60dde2daaccb7da.msi and this build is properly signed.

Hence closing this issue.
