I have only ever signed the installer packages using GPG as a separate
file. I have never enclosed a signature and x.509 code signing
certificate in the executable file itself. As far as I know, it still
costs money to acquire an x.509 certificate suitable for signing Windows
executables. "Supplier: Unknown Supplier" has little to do with virus
scans. Windows is saying that the package's publisher is unidentified,
and it really is unidentified.
