Can't do. VJ++ is no longer supported by MS. Best thing to
do was write C++ code and use JNI. The options were limited
because of the way MS applies DSigs to code and also how they
sign cab files. It is fundamentally different than the way
Java would sign a jar file.

Haven't looked at much of anything yet. The one thing that will
help me is the developer who wrote the code is a big emacs guy
so he has a makefile and used command line compilers etc. instead
of an IDE and project files.
