Code Signing Steps

I will be selling two applications, one a console app and the other a GUI app; both are .NET 4.0 apps. After they are compiled, they are submitted to an obfuscating program; then they are zipped up and copied to my web site. The apps do not require installation.

My two questions are: When I use code signing, can I sign the apps after they are obfuscated?

And…after they are code signed, will the apps require installation or can they continue to be copied?
