    What are the impacts of running an application that is not signed? Will the
    user get a warning message when they launch the application? If they get a
    warning message will this message appear every time they launch the
    application?

    Run Visual Studio and create an application and run it and see what happens.
    Does a warning message come up?
    Do you have a copy of Vista to try this on?
    I have never seen any warning message about an unsigned application.
    I have run many applications and I don't think all of them are signed.
    I know that some warning about unsigned drivers will show up on 64 bit
    versions of Vista.
