Hopefully I can offer a little help on the delay sign issue mentioned
What is happening is that Visual studio detects the file has changed since
it built it (the signing of it)
What you can do to use project output is do the signing in the post build
event of the C# dll, this will cause it to build every time you build teh
setup project however it will be signed before it is included in the setup
