My ClickOnce app is signed with a PFX I got from Sectigo, the Publisher shown is actually me, but it continues to show the "Protected your PC" box. I know it's supposed to earn "SmartScreen" reputation points somehow, but I have no idea how that works and there's no apparent way monitor the progress. The install is located on a website, external to potential customers. But if customers can't install, then I can't be succesful.
I also purchased an EV key, but it turns out to be a physical device that must be connected to the build machine - which is somewhere in an OCI cloud - and the EV key cannot create a .PFX for signing via MAGE.
Am I trapped? Anything I can do to expedite sufficient points? Any ideas?
