Invalid value for 'AssemblyVersion' when trying to sign a clickonce assembly

I always get this error when I try to sign the assembly with my on certificate. If I skip the certification thing then everything works as expected and the builds takes place.

I've followed some post that I cannot seem to find in order to configure all: I created an environment variable with the pfx password secured, I pushed the pfx file to the repository and created a PS script but then I always get this Invalid value for AssemblyVersion error.

Do you have any idea of why this is happening?

Best regards,

    I've resolved it myself.

    It seems that you need a four digit version when you sign a clickonce app, so I changed it from 1.0.{build} to 1.0.0.{build} and it worked-
