self-signed certificate problem
Posted on 2003-12-09
I have made a self-signed certificate, transformed the certificate to Software Publisher Certificate and signed my cab file.
After I installed the certificate in "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" everything works as expected. That is, when I browse to the page on the remote site where I have placed the page and the cab file a security warning appear, "Do you want to install and run..", when I answer yes all files is extracted and my activex control shows in the browser.
The problem is that it does not work on other computers - even if I install the certificate in "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" on the other computer. I know that the problem is not any missing files (a normal installation works with the same files).
It just will not unpack and install the files. The security warning come up but nothing happens. Is this behavior by design for self-signed certificates?
