[Solved] Setting a publisher for a game

So, when I load my game, I get this:

Now, I realize that there's nothing I can do about this. Obviously, being an independent video game developer (read: newb), I'm not going to be a "trusted" publisher. But is there any way to tell Windows to change "Unknown Publisher" to something else? Or is this too next-level for a newbie dev?

Changing “Publisher” information for a “.exe” file

(you need a resource editor. I dunno if cff explorer or resource hacker can do it, but I'm sure something can)

Hm. I'm going to assume, then, that I'm boned. I worry that any external program might screw with my Ren'Py code, and there's always the problem of unpacking and repacking a distro.

I take that back. I got one of those programs and it seems to have worked. Oddly enough, the warning message doesn't appear anymore. But the game still seems to be functioning, so that's good.

Sure! It's called ResEdit.
