Signing the manifest with pfx file

Guest

Hello,
I have the Microsoft Authenticode certificates (PKCS #7 Certificates, .spc
and .pvk files) acquired from Verisign. How do I use this certificates to
Sign the manifest for ClickOnce deployment. IDE accepts only .pfx files.
Importing in Internet Explorer and exporting back doesn't seem like an
option. Any advice?

Regards,
Sajan

Hi Sajan,

Thank you for posting.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 supports only Personal Information Exchange
(PFX) key files with the .pfx extension. However, you can select other
types of certificates from the current user's Windows certificate store
using the Select a Certificate Dialog Box to sign your manifest.

To access this dialog box, select a project node in Solution Explorer, then
on the Project menu, click Properties. When the Project Designer appears,
click the Signing tab. On the Signing page, click the Select from Store
button. Then a "Select a Certificate" window appears and you could select a
certificate from the list box in this window to sign your ClickOnce
manifests.

Hope this is helpful to you.
If you have any concerns or need anything else, please don't hesitate to
let me know.


Sincerely,
Linda Liu

Thanks for responding. When I look at the certificate store under
Certificates (Local Computer)/Personal/Certificates, I can see the
certificate there. But it is not available when I select the option "Select
From Store..." from Visual Studio. What could be happening? Is there any way
to generate a pfx file from the authenticode Certificates?
