Hello,

Does anyone know how to programatically install a digital certificate using
IS6?

We have a certificate file (with a .crt extension) that needs to be
installed along with some other files. I tried launching it with
LaunchAppAndWait( ) and that did not work. I also tried putting the
certificate in it's own file group as a self-registering file, but that did
not work either (the .crt is an associated file type in my Windows
machines).

The certificate installs fine manually by double-clicking on it. However,
we are trying to avoid having our users go to this extent for the
installation process.

Any help/pointers would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Andre

Andre,

Look up in HKEY_ROOT what program is associated with .crt extension. Run
this with your certificate file as the argument.
