Can the installation binary be digitally signed going forward? I think this will help the application get past some corporate security policies once the signing key is whitelisted there.
self signed CA cert

UAC warning when installing the signed application
I assume that you are talking about MS Windows installers.
That's now done in r15584 based on the instructions found in How do I create a self-signed certificate for code signing on Windows?.
Note: you will need to install the self signed CA file first using:
certutil -user -addstore Root xpra-ca.cer
There are signed windows beta builds you can test: http://xpra.org/beta/windows. @andrewmunn: please close this ticket if that works for you.
Ultimately, we should use a proper CA, but at ~$160 per year. Those don't come cheap. One benefit of those certificates is that they are apparently trusted on Mac OSX too, so we wouldn't have to pay the apple developer fee to get the PKG / DMG signed (the apple developer account key has now expired, that was complete waste of money: see #1340).
Minor build system update: r15642
Not heard back, closing.
