I have an application (installer, actually) that was built outside of Xcode which I have codesigned using the codesign utility, but when I try to install it after downloading the signed app, Gatekeeper complains that it comes from an unidentified developer. I have tried using the "3rd Party Mac Developer:..." identity, as well as my own "Mac Developer:..." identity; same result in either case. codesign (as far as I can tell) says all is well, so I'm thinking I'm either using the wrong identity (in which case my question is what I should use/make-to-use instead) or the signature is fine, but there is something that needs to be done w/ my developer account (in which case my question is what might that be).

No, thank YOU. The next time I post somewhere and get conflicting accounts as to whether the question is on-topic, and where it might be better to post, I'll be sure to try and hide that fact. Sorry for trying to be up-front. –  Scott Hunter Sep 7 '12 at 20:18
