Hi

I am working on an application that will need to be able to register .pfx certificate files into the windows certificate manager.

I have tryed various approaches to do that :

* programatically using win32's CryptoAPI  (Tryed using PFXImportCertStore)
* command line using CertMgr.exe  (maybe I was failing to get the parameters right)

And without success...

I can't do the registration with the "Windows Certificate Import Wizard" since I need the import to happen automatically upon reception of a new .pfx file and it's password string.

I would like to hear any ideas or ways to handle this issue.

Thanks

Hi,

Your best bet is to try and get the correct parameters for CertMgr.

I used this syntax to add one of my certificates previously:
 certmgr /add /c /n sts01 /s my sts01.cer
 CertMgr Succeeded

Seemed to work OK.
