    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • Hi,

    I went through the link and my understanding is that .cer file should be already present in the package and I have to give the path in the manifest certificate extensions. but in my app I need to download the .cer file from server and install (.cer extension) each time app is launched. please guide me how it can be done in the code?
