What is the firewall looking for when it flags a file for not having a valid digital signature?

When I am installing a software package I am developing, I am flagged by the Norton Internet Security firewall that a file does not have a valid digital signature when in fact the file is signed. Does Norton look for a specific Digital Signature format/Hash algorithm when it is verifying the signature? Nothing appears in the security history to show why the file was flagged.  I contacted support but they could not provide the information I was looking for and never made the return call they promised.  Thanks.

Hello Logikel. If you can grab a screenshot of the detection, follow this guide to post the screenshot directly into your post. Does your package have a "setup.exe" compiled into the program and if so, is setup.exe signed?
