OK I give up with searching Vista , I'll implement your reg entries as my Windows 7 wont have those.


What file permissions do I need to assign to the wincal.exe and wincal.exe.mui files, once they'd been transfered across, would you know?

I only used what is in those zip files.

Then wincal should be under control panel>Default programs.

Open File - Security Warning : Without Digital Signature

That is fantastic!!! Thats more than I could have hoped for. The original Vista program now launches from my Windows 7.

There is a slight snag, or perhaps I'm still missing something. Problem seems to be I get an "Open File - Security Warning. The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this program?" dialog box, every time wincal is launched.

What would be needed to register in order that the publisher be verified?

Yes the files from each directories had needed unblocking from another computer.

Having unblocked each file, I still receive the Signature verification error. What could be the matter? I re-did (re-merged) the registry entries too.

Ah, wait a moment: I restarted the computer, and noticed at the beginning of the user session that wincal starts up automatically.

After wincal starts automatically at the beginning of the user session then the publisher digital signage dialogue is not present.

However, should wincal be run manually from the Start Menu, then that is when the computer prompts the user with the warning.

---------
Edit: The computer re-blocks wincal.exe when exiting the Properties window too. If I unblock wincal.exe, click accept, then click OK to exit, then immediately return to wincal.exe Properties, I find the system has blocked the program again, even before the user has had chance at running program again.

Works fine here.

Use the settings in my screenshot in my previous post

Did you also adjust the properties on wincal .exe in programfiles (x86)

I think I mean the file attributes.

Doesn't work when I run program from start menu. OK when program auto starts as a scheduled task.

Perhaps I did things in wrong order? I'll rollback system to point before reg enteries were merged. Then I'll try unblovking files in download folder before they are finally copied to the program folders. Then I'll merge the reg enteries AFTER the files exist in the program folders.

I'll use your settings shown in the screenshot.
