A VB 2005 project that has been successfully built and published in the past
will build but will not publish at this time.  The project builds
successfully from the Build menu, however, when I attempt to publish it, VS
gives the following two errors:

Error    1    Cannot publish because a project failed to build.        1    1    HourlyYield

Error    2    SignTool reported an error 'Failed to sign
bin\Debug\HourlyYield.publish\\setup.exe. SignTool Error: ISignedCode::Sign
returned error: 0x80880253

    The signer's certificate is not valid for signing.

SignTool Error: An error occurred while attempting to sign:

'.    HourlyYield

The Signing tab on the project properties page shows a certificate
expiration date of 10-3-07.  Today is 3-25-08.  I do not know how or where to
get a new certificate or if this is even the root of my problem.
