Signing with EV Certificate

Post by wwopp@enveloc.com » Mon May 04, 2020 10:50 pm

We purchased an EV Certificate from Sectigo formerly Comodo and it comes only on a "Smart Card". Therefore every time on rebuilds one has to paste / click OK several times to sign each embedded exe and the output msi and exe. It is ridiculous.

Advanced Installer will become even more valuable if you will figure out how to secure the Smart Card PIN and employ it automatically when prompted.

Hey Catalin,

Does something have to be enabled in 17.4.1 for the PIN to be cached? I just upgraded from 17.2 and am still getting prompted just as much (20 times per build!).

Thanks!

Hi and welcome to our forums,

Could you try to install and configure an authentication client as exposed on "Extended Validation Certificate save password?" thread and see if this helps?

All the best,
