I am still getting a "SignFile" task error when trying publish a ClickOnce application like I talked about before.

Several people have googled "SignFile task error" and "CertificateThumbprint" and have found my previous post. Has anybody solved this yet? I have looked through the manifests and haven't seen anything that resembles this.

Note that the application builds, it just will not publish.

I just got the same error, but found a fix pretty quickly. Like you, it was on a rebuilt / different PC from where the original app was published, and I found it's due to the certificate signing the ClickOnce manifest. Go to properties on the project, and to the Signing tab. You've probably got 'Sign the ClickOnce manifests' selected. Click 'Select from Store...', and select a certificate from the current PC. If there are no certificates available, create a new one. Now, to get a free 'real' certificate....
