Signing installer with signtool

InstallForge works great so far. I am stuck in signing the installer with a digital certificate.

I sign my_installer_file.exe with the following command (it is a standard procedure):

signtool.exe sign /a my_installer_file.exe

Then, if I execute the installer, it hangs. It consumes around 30% of the CPU. It the temp directory, there is a file that keeps growing, it did not stop at 2GB! :o

my_installer_file.exe is working perfectly before signing it with singtool.exe. It just hangs after signing it.
Is there any solution?

Did you manage to resolve this issue?
I am having the same problem. I have also tried using ksign from kSoftware
and have the same problem.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

I can confirm that I am experiencing the same issue. Without a solution, I'll need to use a different installer. That's a shame, this tool is really nice.
