Installing a web service client certificate RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    Why when I install a client X509 certificate from our suppliers website (via clicking on the padlock icon) and I select the 'Automatically select the certificate
    store based on the type of certificate', does it always place the certificate in my personal store and under the 'other people'?

    Although in my ASP.NET 2.0 application I am able to pull out this certificate from this personal store location, I was under the impression that the certificates need to be stored
    under the local computer and not the current user. I am developing on XP at the moment. Will installing the client certificate on a Windows 2003 server install it in a different location?

    Some current read sources on this would be great since what I am reading at the moment seems to be a mix between .NET1.1 .NET 2.0 way of doing things.

    Thanks in advance.
