### Getting a Code Signing Certificate

Be aware that you will likely need to create a Dun & Bradstreet listing to get an "organization" code-signing certificate: https://www.dandb.com/businessdirectory/products/ (this is free)

You can purchase a code-signing certificate here: https://cheapsslsecurity.com/comodo/codesigningcertificate.html The validation process will take 1-3 business days if your information is correct and you give them your D-U-N-S (Dun & Bradstreet) number. After you receive an email containing a link to the certificate, follow these directions in the **exact same** browser as the one you used to request the certificate : https://cheapsslsecurity.com/downloads.aspx?ispdf=true&iscs=true&filenm=Comodo_Code_Signing_Collection_Guide.pdf

Select the number of years you want the certificate to be valid for (you'll pay per year). Add it to your cart. It'll add you for billing address and payment information. Then it will ask to you enter your business information and street address as well as the mailing address of the company. Then it will have you request a certificate. You must use the **exact same** browser to request and collect the certificate.

You can view the status of your order by going to your account: https://cheapsslsecurity.com/client/ordersummary.html

If you scroll down, you will see something like this:

Click on the paper and magnifying glass on the right side to view the status of your order.

You should see:

Under "Order Status", it should either saying "Pending (Awaiting Validation)" or "Active". If your certificate is active, you are ready to follow these instructions to collect the certificate: https://cheapsslsecurity.com/downloads.aspx?ispdf=true&iscs=true&filenm=Comodo_Code_Signing_Collection_Guide.pdf

Please note that you will need to use the **exact same** browser to collect the certificate as the one you used to request it. The validation process will take 1-3 business days. If it takes longer than that, reach out to their support team.

Put this certificate in the same folder as your `server.exe` file.
