    107107Any relatively recent Windows 7 installation supports SHA2 Authenticode signatures. This means that the laborious and fragile dual-signature process can be avoided. You only need the EV SHA2 kernel-mode code-signing certificate, which probably comes in the form of a dongle that integrated with Windows certificate store. Optionally you may sign the tap-windows6 installer with a non-EV SHA2 code-signing certificate.

     109The build process is somewhat easier than with dual signatures. There are only a couple small differences:
     110
     111* buildtap.py should not use the --sign switch or any of its parameters
     112* Sign-Tap6 does not need the -Append switch
     113* An older version of signtool.exe can be used on the code-signing computer as appending of signatures is not necessary
