Comment(by mo):

 I think you should sign. What you need is the "Core SDK Tools" that ship
 with the Platform SDK. You can select to install only those, and AFAIK you
 don't need Visual Studio.

 (web installer)

 unsigned executables: http://www.kinook.com/blog/?p=10

 "get a code signing certificate (or digital ID) from a certification
 authority (CA) such as Comodo, Thawte, VeriSign, and others. You will need
 a Class 3 digital certificate for code signing."
