Signing and Certificates
« on: March 13, 2014, 11:27:34 am »

I have a question concerning certificate signing. We have our own certificate authority that I am using to create a certificate for my WInbatch scripts. When I install the certificate into my personal store, WInbatch will compile without errors. If I delete the certificate and reimport to the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store and try to compile, I receive a certificate not found error. Is Winbatch only capable to using certificates in the personal store or can I tell Winbatch where to look for the certificate?

You need to use the personal store if you are going use the WinBatch compiler or IntControl 93 to sign scripts.  Of course you can sign a compiled WinBatch script using other methods like MSFT's signtool or just keep the certificate in both places.
