Manifest Signing Certificates

Hi,

I recently moved a VB application from one machine to another and now receive the following error message in Visual Studio (2005):

"Unable to find manifest signing certificate in the certificate store."

I'v tried finding as much information as I can but haven't found much, does anyone know if the certificate required by VS can be exported and imported easily between machines?

Any help on this would be great,

Thanks,

Sterry

Sterry,

Here is one person's solution:

I got this when I renamed my C# project then tried to publish it. To solve, I went to the "Signing" tab of the project properties and unchecked "Sign the ClickOnce manifests". Good luck!

Unfortunately the 'Sign the ClickOnce Manifests' box is already unchecked...

1) Are you signing your assembly?  

2) Is there a .snk file somewhere in the project's file structure?

Here is a rough translation from a blog that I found:

http://thespoke.net/blogs/renato_banzai/default.aspx

Click on the project properties and go to the "Signing" tab and click in Create Test Certificate.

But, I don't know if that will solve your problem.

Thanks for your suggestions, Bob.

I am not signing the assemblies.

Creating a Test Certificate didn't get rid of the error, sadly. I'v checked both computers and I can't seem to find an .snk file in the project directory, either...

Anyone else encountered this problem?

I managed to sort this problem out.

Another project as part of the solution was signed. In the signing's tab of the project, click More Details for the certificate and it can then be exported (with the private key).

Install this key on the machine with the error and the application should then run.
