I'm literally compiling a new version of kSign right now and hope to release it soon - it doesn't use signtool at all so that requirement will be gone in the very near future. I am moving away from the browser-based key generation VERY soon as well, so the IE requirement at order time will be gone. It's not technically required now as you're free to generate and submit your own CSR, but that is a pain. I'm writing a utility to help Windows users with that.
I did see somewhere that it's possible to codesign Windows apps on MacOS if you have a different version of the certificate (as per https://mkaz.blog/code/code-signing-a-w ... plication/). Is it feasible produce a version of kSign that will run on macs to codesign windows apps?

Considering the target audience here, that would probably be very well received...

@Stam

You can use osslsigncode form the commandline to code sign Windows standalones on macOS.

Some time ago i've created a little GUI for osslsignocode in LC along with some instructions how to install osslsigncode.

You'll find it here https://winsignhelper.dermattes.de

Wow thank you!
Looks good - haven't been able to test it yet as installing osslsigncode is turning out to be convoluted situation (Xcode 12.5 tools are taking hours to download), but will definitely check it out.

The actual stack looks really good - thank you for sharing!
