Hello,

I've got an Active X .cab file that I want to digitally sign.

We purchased a Microsoft Authenticode code signing certificate from Verisign.

The certificate is installed on my Windows 7 PC.

I need help coming up with the appropriate command line signcode.exe syntax to sign the cab file.

Thanks in advance for any help!!

its usually just
signcode /spc <certfile.spc> /v <keyfile.pvk> <control.dll>
you may need to convert to spc+pvk if they are currently in a different format though.

I was able to figure it out. I didn't know the file name, so figured out how to do it with the sha1 identifier.

Cool. I suggest you post the line you *did* use then, for our edification, then accept that as the solution :)

It was something like:

signtool.exe sign /sha {sha code for the certificate} {location of .cab file}
