Code-signing certificate stores for machine account vs. user account: functional differences?
Posted on 2010-08-19
I have a digitally signed Access MDE that I want to push out to roughly 35 workstations around our office and I want to code sign it such that any authenticated users on a given workstation can run the code.
On a test deploy to one workstation, I did a manual code-signing certificate request that stored the requested certificate in the User certificate store for the local user. I presume this would have to be done for each user account on the machine.
I noticed that there is also a store for the machine account. Can this be used to allow all users on a given machine to run a signed MDE without having to individually request certificates?
