We have a certificate server and issue code signing certificates to our VBA persons, we had a problem with a bad certificate getting installed so we went through and deleted and installed the correct one.  Once we did this VBA does not see the certificates any longer?  I can go into other computers and it works fine, but on the machine where I deleted and re-added it does not recognize the cert in VBA.  If I try to add the cert in Word it sees the cert.  I added the cert through CertMgr.msc and it looks fine.  This is a process on a new machine that works fine but on ones where we deleted old cert and re-added it's not working.  When i go to choose cert in VBA is says "No Certificate Available"

I have attached screen shots.

what you probably should have done was revoke the invalid cert and then install the new corrected certificate.

It was actually a problem with not being patched.  When I patched both machines they suddenly were able to see and use the certificate.
