About the digital signature of your CustoPack

In order to make safe the CustoPack’s use, we add a digital signature system on « dll modifications » and « additional software » categories.

Each CustoPack containing files in these two categories will has to be digitally signed by our team. Without digital signature, these two categories will be ignored during the installation.

Others categories (Standard icons, Visual Styles, Backgrounds, Fonts, Cursors, Sounds, Logon Screen, RocketDock, ColorFolder) don’t need digital signature.
