NOTE: The SelfCert.exe program is not part of the standard installation of Microsoft Office. If you need to install the SelfCert.exe program, rerun Setup for Office CD1 and click Add or Remove Features. Click the plus sign (+) next to Office Tools; click Digital Signature for VBA Projects and then click Run from My Computer. Click Update Now.

because of this, you may find trouble finding a place to download it

Thanks, all.

I don't have my Office installation CD to hand, but I need the file quite urgently.

Any suggestions?

Hmm.. I would guess you should make some more efforts in getting your CD from MS if you had lost ..

Maynot be correct to email you offline sending you the file through email

All,

I understand issues with Piracy, etc., but I have a legitimate copy of Office.

It would be really helpful if someone could mail me the file.

Thanks

Then borrow a cd-rom somewhere, as long as you have a valid licence, you're allowed to do that.

Thanks; I know this but it isn't possible right now.

You're also allowed to email me a copy of the file, as the EE restrictions on email addresses are to prevent unfair collusion, not solutions. Plus the file is distributed with Office anyway.

If you guys can't do this, I will wait until I am able to refer to my install CD and I'll cancel the question.

We told you how to get it, sending it through e-mail isn't a valid solution. You're trying to bend the rules.

If you don't like it, it's not really my problem is it? But my solution is valid.

All,

I know how to get the file from the CD. This was never the problem.
At the time I asked the question, I needed the file urgently and thought it would be easier if someone could mail it. Apparently not.
I am not trying tio bend any rules; surely the spirit is what counts rather than the letter? Suggest a moderator give a view on this.

Re: "If you don't like it, it's not really my problem is it? But my solution is valid."

Your solution is not valid for the question asked, but thanks for your helpful suggestions anyway.
I agree this is not your problem. I am not sure what your problem is, though.

Suggest a points split, unless anyone disagrees?

All,

no probs.
The intent was to distribute all the points among all the contributors. I've been here before and didn't want to annoy any particular individual.
What do you mean by "giving the lowest possible grade"? How else could I have split points? They couldn't all have 500.
I awarded C grades as the question was not answered satifactorilly. I needed a file urgently and no-one provded it, which I can understand as they had issues with possible collusion and/or piracy. The urgency then went away as I was able to access the original media.
Nothing should be gleaned from the accepted answer. I had to accept one or other. Would you prefer this was changed?

Just a suggestion, but maybe you should review whether particular answers supplied are helpful or self-serving. Then decide how YOU would have awarded points.

Regards

Netminder,

I thought that's what I did!
Who didn't get any points?

For a satifactory answer, i.e.: one which helped, I would have given an A.

Thanks - you reminded me that I can get any old Office install CD.  Now to find one.  Really curious that it doesn't exist anywhere for download though. I mean NOwhere that I can find.

It is not just a simple matter to download SelfCert.exe. You also need some other programs (MakeCert.exe for one) and various registry settings to create a certificate. I tried copying the SelfCert.exe from a PC with full office to one which has just Small Business Edition, and copying the modules didn't let me produce a certificate.
