Sign cab file which deploy certificate RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.
    I am wondering if it is possible to create CAB file that deploy certificate to Privilege or Unprivilege certificate store.
    Then sign that cab file with trusted certificate by some certificate authority like ex Verisign.

    I would like to deploy that cab to our employees devices.

  • Hello,

    Privilege or unprivileged certificate cab is already there with ur SDK, you just need to sign it using signing tool if you have valid Verisign cert.

    I have CPF file with deploy my 
    onw  Certificate to
    Priviledge Excecution Trus  Authorities
    Unpriviledge  Execution  Trus  Authorities
    * SPC
    * ROOT

    *Lock device to Two Tier Mode

    Now all phones in our company would be  blocked  but I as admin could unlock it by my application with is signed by my certificate.
    My certificate was added to phone by CPF file.

    Will such CPF has any chance for being signed?

  • Hi kuki1384,

    As far as I know, cpf can be signed via  Microsoft Authenticode® signing tools. Please refer to MSDN document:
